How to switch from crumbles to pellets

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Mine have been on chick crumbles, then grower/starter crumbles. They are now starting to lay, and I bought a small bag of layer crumbles to make the transition easier. I have bought the same brand each time, in hopes the taste and texture would be similar. I know they don't like change. So would you all suggest mixing in some of the layer crumbles with layer pellets to get them on pellets? There's a big difference in the size and texture, so I don't want them to stop eating.

 

Thanks for your help!

Your plan sounds good.

They won't stop eating for long. They're voracious eaters and won't starve themselves.
