  11. i think if you want and easy alternative you could just feed her 50% mixed corn and 50% growers pellets mixed together in her feeder and then any other s"Ooops, word censored!"s from the kitchen. the growers will keep her big and strong and the mixed corn is really to balance it out a bit. this should bring down her egg production. hope this helps sam
  12. ive just recently hatched chicks on a farm they were hatched under a broody and there mother must have thought they would be alright when she left them at 5 weeks and they are 8 weeks now and growing really well. so i would say they will be ok outside as long as they have a nice werm hut to go into at night
  13. as he is only 12 weeks old and probably not mature yet i think that you can just chuck him straight in
