I just had a hen hatch a chick and was wondering what the chick and hen are supposed to eat. The hen is eating grower at the moment, but what will she have to start eating when the chick starts eating?
Usually you feed chicks Chick Starter feed, it is higher in protein then Grower feed and they both can eat Starter that is fine since your hen would not be laying at the moment.

ideally yes. I'm glad you are enjoying your broody; are they your flock's eggs or did you buy some in for her?
