    Grower feed to 18 weeks, then layer if you're looking for eggs, and I think you use something else for meat birds...I stuck with food in crumble form since they seem to like it!

    Maybe my birds are just little pigs, cuz I prefer to give them pellets. While they'll eat crumbles well enough, they tend to throw it all over the place (lots of waste).
