    What all can I feed my pullets? I have been giving them just the chick starter. My question is this, can they have whole oats and corn chops too? Will it help them grow? Or just stay with the the starter?

    Go ahead just remember to give them grit now that they are eating more then just the starter.

    The starter has enough grit for the digestion of the starter but not enough for "treats" - go easy on the corn though especially in hot weather. It "ups" their metabolism which will stress them in the heat, corn is better as a winter treat. I give mine all kinds of table scraps, if your not sure at the top of this section is a sticky that has what to avoid for treats & plants and what is good.... https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=21530
