I need feeding advice- I have four buff orpington girls, and i am chicken-sitting eight more (2 each EE, BO, RIR, Comets). They are all 9 weeks old today. I'm still feeding my girls starter crumbles that they've been on since they hatched, and have enough to keep feeding for a while, but the chickens that I'm watching are about to run out of the same food. What is the proper food to switch to at 9 weeks? I'm looking for a particular name and brand. I know that it's a "grower/finisher" but i've now been twice sold the wrong food- first, Nutrena game & turkey grower, and then Nutrena layer mash. I don't think the kids working at my local agway know what they are talking about- i know not to give layer mash to 9 week olds. My starter crumbles say hatch to 8 weeks of age. It appears my local agway does not believe in feeding chickens from the age of 8 weeks to the first lay, because they don't offer anything for that age. (Also, I know someone will say I need to contact the owner of the chickens and let them decide, but its my brother, and our chicks are all from the same hatch and we are pretty much keeping them on the same schedule, so if he switches food, I know I need to as well). So--- what do you feed when they outgrow starter but aren't old enough for layer? Is there a Pull-Ups of chicken food?
