Hello Everyone! I have 10 week old chicks, that are starting to get too big for the brooding box. We have 19 hens from this spring that are already laying. We have had them out in a separate pen during the day, and back in the brooder box at night. I am wondering when I should just let them out with the big girls (we have let them free range with the big girls without a lot of problems), but when can they go into the coop with the big girls? Which brings me to my next question...If they are being housed with the big girls what do I feed them all? The younger ones can't have layer food. Can they all eat GROWER food? Another question (OT) what do I do about the eggs outside of the nesting boxes? Is there a way to make/encourage them lay eggs in the boxes? I feel like a newbie all over again. There is always something new coming up that I have no clue about. Thank you in advance for all your help!
