    Hi everyone! As I previously said, Sully got killed. Me and my dad went to the feed store, and got 2 more chicks! They had about 50 chickens, 30 chicks, and a bunch of fancy roosters! We chose the fluffiest cutest ones! These ones are 2 months old. We got a white silkie, and a buff colored silkie. The white one is named Gizmo, and the buff one is named Intuite.
    I'll post some pictures tomorrow!

    So the chicks I had before the one's I got were hatched on July 9, 2014, so they are about a month old, while the ones I added to the flock are 2 months old. Is it okay for the ones that are 2 months old to still eat the chick starter mash 22%, until they are all old enough to be fed the all purpose/grower feed?

    I think on some of the non-medicated chick starter mash it says you can feed chicks up to 16 weeks of age so you should be good!
