    I have 2 hens-a-laying & just added 3 chicks (9 weeks) to the flock. By tomorrow they will all be together living happily ever after.

    What do i feed them? Chick grower or layer feed? I know the chicks should be on grower but what will that do to my two layers? shouldn't they have more calcium?

    I have the same question. I have 5 week old now and the end of June I am getting 5 more day old chicks. By then the 5 week olds will be 10 weeks and when I mix them when the babies are about 5 weeks what do I feed them? The big girls will be about ready to go on layer and the little girls will be about 13 weeks. So what do I do to feed them? Someone please help and let us know what to do!! Thanks.[​IMG]
