    hi i have a flock of 12 chickens and i have 18 chicks that 5 and 3 weeks old i was wondering what i should do because the little ones are getting to big for the brooder but i dont have a second coop to put them in so i need to put them with the big guys but they eat layer pellets and the little ones eat quick grow. could the big ones eat the quick grow and still lay eggs or should i feed all of them layer pellets?

    Can you build a chicken tractor to house the 5-weekers in until they can be on layer feed (at about 20 weeks0?
