    I have 6 RIRs that are about 7 weeks old. I'm still trying to get through the bag of chick starter. When should they start on the grower formula?

    Thanks!

    You can keep giving them straight chick starter until 8 weeks and I have read even up to 10 weeks. Then you can just mix what you have left with a a bag of flock raiser or grower formula, and feed it until it is gone.
