    Would there be a problem changing from crumble to pellets, and would the girls even notice. I think my girls waste more crumble than they eat. They have been on crumble ever sence they started laying. They are 11 months now. Was just asking because I'd hate to buy pellets and then the girls not eat it. I do have the feeder chest high or higher but they still push it out on the floor of the coop.

    I have had good luck blending the feed over a period of a week or two (I also do this if I'm changing brands). After that they should be fine with just pellets. They will waste far less with the pellets. Good luck.
