    My chickens are about 15 weeks now. I just checked the food supply and it looks like I will need to buy feed in the next week to two weeks. They have been on medicated chick feed that was supposed to be given until 18-20 weeks. I really don't want to buy another 50 lb. bag of it if I will need to switch them to something else two weeks later. What should I do?

    I think it would be safe to switch your chicks to grower feed. If you don't need to buy feed for another two weeks, they will be 17 weeks when they switch over. If the chick starter was to be fed till 18-20 weeks, you are only a week off.
