    How long do I keep my chicks on Chick Starter? They get treats from time to time (meal worms), but the rest is chick starter. I've just moved them out to the coop, but they're not outdoors yet.
    When do they start on adult food?


    Thanks,
    Andrea

    You have a choice. You can leave them on the starter all the way to adulthood, which is time of laying eggs.

    Or you can switch them to Raiser or Grower until adulthood.
    When the eggs start coming you can switch them to layer feed if you wish.
