I've got four adult birds - 3 hens and 1 rooster - who are on layer pellets. And now I have five 8/10-week-old girls who are on pullet crumble. Each age group has its own feeder with the appropriate feed in it. For the most part, they eat what they're supposed to eat, and they share their treats as nicely as might be expected. (In other words, I keep a separate treat area for the little ones so they get something, too, but they still all get into each other's stuff. No biggie.) But every now and then, I see the pullets snacking on the layer feed and the adult hens snacking on the pullet feed. I shoo them away from the stuff they shouldn't be eating, but I'm not out there with them 24/7. Is this OK? Will this damage them in any way, or affect their laying and/pr development? I know it sounds like such a newbie question, but it's the first time I've had mixed ages. Please help!
