    What other birds do you have? They can be switched to a grower or something like Flock Raiser.

    We have RIR, Amberlink , Easter Eggers etc. feed them all laying pellets. the Cochin are not interested in these pellets. I have been mixing the chick feed and pellets. did not work.

    They will eat them if not given a choice. They don't need layer yet anyway though. You can feed flock raiser to everyone.
