OK - my babies are now 4mos old. They freerange daily with the Big Girls & roost at night in their own section of the coop or sometimes right alongside the hens. The hens still chase them off sometimes, but halfheartedly, no violence or bloodshed. I had sectioned off part of the coop and fed the babies in there but today I removed the partition and just set their feeder out. My thought was the hens know where their feeder is and after eating head right out so will probably ignore the grower feed in the smaller feeder. The babies don't eat a lot in the morning, they eat a bit then go out to freerange with the flock right away. Feeders are left out all day so hens & chicks can free feed. I remove both feeders at night as I've had a rat problem and removing the buffet from the coop has helped a lot. Will the babies get enough grower this way? They are both big & strong-looking - especially I-Told-You-NOT-To-Be-A-Rooster (formerly Juanita, now John) but little Consuelo is near his size too. I plan on switching them to layer feed in a month anyhow & have seen them sneaking pellets from the hens' feeder.
