    I have two one year old orps on layer pellets and one rescue "Easter Chick" that a friend decided to buy because it was cute but now does not want it. There should be a law against this.
    Went to farm bureau and purchased 50 lb bag of pellets for girls and 50 lb bag of chick starter for Dora. Since I will have allot left over of chick starter can I mix this will the layer pellets perhaps 50/50 or 75/25 to use it up. Thanks:/

    I would add it 75/25 until gone. However, you could just get more chicks.

    I agree with Opa. That much feed is just crying out for more birds to eat it! [​IMG]
