I have 9 week old chics, when do I feed layer crumbles.
when do I feed layer crumbles?
I never switch until I see an egg. Some of my big girls go almost 30 weeks before they start to lay. Too much calcium in the layer feed too soon will cause kidney issues.
Thanks, one of the local stores said go ahead now. I was surprised by their response because I thought I had heard around 16 weeks or so. Should I still be feeding them the medicated starter/grower?
You can use plain starter/grower or flock raiser until the point of lay.
