Ground starter vs starter grower crumbles

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi I have 6 6-7 week old chicks and they were on a ground almost powder starter food and I just switched to a starter grower crumble and while they do eat it they don't seem to like it as much. Is this something I should worry about or will they figure out how to eat it better?

Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us.

 

If they have access to grit, or wonder around your garden, they should be fine with growers food. Chickens don't like change (neither do i, for that matter :)) so it may take them a while to get used to it.

 

All the best

x2 on CTKen, your chicks should be fine once they get used to the change.

 

Have fun with them!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
