I was just talking to my local farm supplies store about feed that my whole flock can eat. I have some new chicks for the first time (yay!) and they were separated from the flock. Mama did not like this at all - she turned into a nervous wreck! I was expecting the opposite to happen but decided to test her in with everyone else and she is doing much better in looking after herself and her babies now. My problem is the other chooks eating the medicated chick starter so I asked the store what my options were and they told me to feed everyone including the chicks showbird breeder and grind it to smaller bits. Something does not feel right about this and I think the food may not be right for the little ones. They would still get medicated feed when they return to their little home with mum as the others can’t get in there - but she wants to keep them with everyone else. What do you feed your flock?
