I hope this belongs in this section... I know I can put my chicks out as soon as they are fully feathered, which they are about 95%. I also have Pekins who are about 3 weeks not really feathered yet. I want to put the chickens out with my others who are about 22 weeks and just started laying. I have been told chicks cant have layer mash but I have read that I can give them game bird feed until the chicks are older is this right? If so, will it interrupt the laying patern of my chickens who just started laying? Should I just leave the chicks inside longer or will it be ok? Thank you!
