when is the best time to switch from chick start to layena
You should most likely keep your flock on chick starter feed until you get your first egg. Your post is rather 'thin' on details...how many chicks do you have? How old are they right now?
Once you begin to get eggs that is the time to switch them over to layer feed. Myself, I feed Purina Layena crumbles.
We recommend switching your chickens from Start & Grow to Layena at 18 weeks of age. As you transition from one diet to another, it is important to have a transition period (7-10 days) where you mix the feeds together. This will help avoid digestive upsets and allow your birds to get used to the taste and texture of their new feed.
