Chick starter question

Is there any harm in keeping some of my chicks on starter until 8 weeks? I have quite a bit left, and by the time it's gone the chicks will be 6 - 8 weeks old. The bag says up until 6 weeks, then switch to grower so I don't want to give them something that could wack out my so far healthy girls.
I feed mine starter/grower until they are 16-18 weeks of age, then switch over to laying pellets..although this year I think I am going to go flock raiser if I can find it in pellets so as not to have so much waste.
Agree with the other posters. In areas where seperate starter and grower is not available, like here, we feed starter/grower until POL.
So, in other words I won't hurt a thing by using up all my starter by 8 weeks then switching to grower, then to layer around 22 weeks or so. Good deal, thanks guys.
