    My 19 chicks are already out in a lot and being fed grower feed as well as free ranging/grazing. I'd like to assume that they will be ok if they haven't choked to death so far but I'd like to treat the 3 older hens to a little scratch(cracked corn). I wondered if that might be a bad idea with the little ones...-though mostly I have heavy breed chicks and they are pretty big already at seven weeks.
