    Am feeding my 4.5 week pullets Purina Start And Grow. At what age do I switch them off of this food to another? And what food do you like to feed your chickens. Would like to go to some form of pellets. Any suggestions.

    I feed chick starter till they start laying. You can feed it forever, but they need extra calcium when they reach maturity.

    Yep, when they start laying.
