1. Chicks are coming next week: first hr: sugar water only (??)1/4 cup sugar per gallonsolid foods to start on 2nd day is that right??? Then I can set out regular water & start with: 20% chick starter medicated (is what I've read) for up to 8 wks then 18% grower from 8 to 15 wks then 16% complete layer from 16 wks to WHEN??? No grains during chick-time what do we use or should avoid in our chicken food.. TREATS: When do we start when they are completely off the starter/grower and complete formulas??? Can we get a large bag of traditional bird seeds to scatter? **When we feed; do we/should we go ahead and scatter regular feed on the ground for the pecking?? or do we save that for treats?? Do they really NEED treats?? I have a field next to me that has either: soybeans, corn (feed corn), alfalfa... can we feed any/all of that??? maybe the soybean plants aftrer the harvester hass came through?? I SO APPRECIATE YOUR HELP!!!
