I've read all about how to make sure older hens don't peck on new chicks, and how to get them used to their new home. But I still have a couple of questions about integrating new chicks into the flock. 1. How do you make sure the chicks eat chick feed and the layers eat layer feed? Provide them with chick feed and crushed eggshells so the layers will eat the crushed shells if they need? 2. How do you make baby chicks understand the coop is their home? I trained my other chickens to go in at night by keeping them in the coop for five days. But I think it would be cruel to leave the chicks in when the other chickens went out. I know that's not really a serious problem, but I always want my chickens to be happy as possible.
