After reading many posts here on when to feed what kind of food, the consensus seems to be to follow the bag or feed store schedule. The bag from my feed store does not have directions and the feed store schedule seems wrong to me even though they are a reputable feed store. So I come here to get your advice. I have been feeding Starter Crumble (21%) to my pullets. They are now 7 weeks old. The store says to feed this until 4 months, then feed hen scratch until 5 months (I seem to remember grit in there too), then layer feed (plus oyster shells, grit, and maybe something else). Another sign actually says that at 3.5 months start on chick scratch until 4 months first. Now it is my understanding that scratch is not really a good food, but rather a good treat. Also, they don't sell anything called "grower" that I can see (at least not in bulk). Since I only have 4 pullets, the 50 lb bag of starter is not even half gone (maybe). It was about the same price as getting two 10 lb ones so I bought the larger bag. Should I just keep feeding this one until it is gone? They eat more now that they are older, so the rest of my bag shouldn't last much more than a month. I am guessing that the answer will be to finish the bag. But what should I feed them after that? Should I look elsewhere for grower? Or should I follow the feed store recommendation and keep with starter then move to scratch? These are my first chickens in case you couldn't guess I have 2 Austrolorps and 2 Buff Orpingtons. Thanks.
