My Polish Hen wouldn't stop setting, so I gave in and let her hatch some chicks. She hatched 2 EE/BLRW crosses and 1 Marans chick. I have always bought or hatched chicks myself and raised then without a mama. I'm wondering if I have to give them starter or can they eat the laying crumbles with the other chickens? They are separated from the big chickens with Polish, Silkies and Mille Fleurs.
