So my 5 week old chicks are out in the coop now with the 1 year olds. They were visible but separated at first and then supervised, then let free. Except for the occasional "putting you in your place" they pretty much leave each other alone. So first, except for the occasional taste, I'm almost positive the young ones are not eating the layer pellets, and I know the big ones are not eating the chick starter (it's partially blocked off and they won't go into that area). Is it o.k. for the little ones to have a few bites here and there, or should I somehow block them off from it? And secondly, whenever I go out to check on them and refill their chick starter, or just to say hello (which of course is quite often ), they are always inside the coop, not in the run. Should I put them outside in the run? It seems though when I do this they just end up back inside anyway, I guess they just like hanging out inside. They will stay out if I stay out with them, but when I leave, they go in. Should I just let them be where they want, or should I shut them outside for a little while? Thanks in advance.
