    I am still successfully raising my rescue meaties with my layer chicks. It takes alot of vigilance to make sure everyone gets enough to eat and drink. I have three 5 gallon waterers. I have a total of four 12 lb. feeders, two that only the layer chicks can reach, and have to check the feed level in them several times a day. The layer chicks love to free range and a few of the meaties have caught on to the idea.
    I just went to check the feeders and look what I found in one of the the meaties feeders:

    That's Ellie Mae (who I'm almost certain is a cockerel), one of my two silkie chicks. No matter how many times I try to explain it to her, I just can't convince her that she's not a meatie!
