    I am not sure if I can feed grains to the hen and chick starter in another plate for the chicks? Do I just feed chick starter to both the hen and chicks?

    I've always fed chick starter to my hens with chicks. If you're going to give anything other than starter and they are not kept outside then you will need to supply grit for the chicks.

    Yep, just give everyone a starter or all-in-one feed.
