Should I move to chicken feed over chick feed?
I agree, also at 10 weeks is when most people start feeding them slowly introducing adult feed or give them grower.I would stop feeding them the treats. They need a complete feed and they likely holding out for the goodies.
You can also try feeding their chick feed to them as a mash or ferment it.
Dobie! Or DL or Tonya.Thanks Debbie,
Can you tell me around what age I move to adult feed?
Yes, stop feeding them treats and just have their feed out for them.
Do you have grit for them?
You can keep them on the starter feed until they start laying, then you can change to a layer feed if you want to. I feed 20% non medicated starter grower from day one and never change. I have oyster shell in a separate container for my laying hens. Others on here feed an All Flock or Flock Raiser all the time and have oyster shell in a separate container.
A couple things I noticed in your set up. Raise the feeder up to back height of your chicks, this prevents billing feed out. Get rid of your heat lamp, it's not needed at their age. I'm glad your coop is still there and didn't catch fire, that lamp looks real close to your bedding.
