    My 9 week olds want to eat everything the big girls get. How old do they have to be to eat BOSS? I hate to deprive the big girls of there favorite treat.

    If you are feeding them BOSS, make sure they also have access to grit. Otherwise, if they want it, let 'em have it. Mama Hen doesn't have access to chick starter so from day one she teaches her chicks to eat all of the same foods she does....
