    We had a broody mama so we let her sit on a nest of eggs. She successfully hatched out four pretty little ones. We have since moved them (mama and babies) to a new coop alone. My question is what food do we give them? Should we give them all starter grower or what. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes feed them the starter/grower, the hen will eat it too and will show them how.

    I use turkey & gamebird starter. It is higher in protein. I also mix in a little scratch for momma.
