    What should my first time mama be fed after not eating for 3 weeks.
    Right now she is getting 20% starter grower with her chicks. Should I be providing anything else?

    Leave her on the chick starter grower , it's the best food you can give them out of a bag !!
    I would keep her on this the rest of her life as the layer feed is a ripoff and does not give your hens/chickens what they need for life . The starter grower will do a much better job .
