I" inherited" 4 ameracauna peeps. When they are 6 wks.old and able to be put outside my other babies will be approx. 18 wks(6 RIR?,2 black? & 2 mille fleur bantams). I plan on putting my brooder in my chicken coop do you think this will help the process? Also should I feed flock raiser to all of them as the 6 wk olds should still have starter & hopefully my others will be laying, or close to it. Don't know what I'm doing.New at this! Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
