I am getting chicks next week. For the past couple weeks one of my older gals has been trying to hatch a golf ball. So, I thought I would set up a small broody coop and put three of the new chicks under her. I would be feeding chick starter- should I put layer pellets in there for her or can she eat the starter?? What are the pros and cons of this idea? I know some of you have done it. I told my DD this idea and she said "Mom, you are the only farmer in the world that would think of that". Thanks!
