    I have four 6 week old chicks, and I can only find a 50 lb bag! I don't think I'll need anywhere near that much because they'll be switching to layer pellets in 8 weeks or so, right?

    Anyone live near me who is in the same predicament? If so, maybe we can go halfsies, or if you already have too much, I can buy some of it.

    Thanks!

    The easiest thing for you to do is blend the starter feed with layer feed if there is some left over. Maybe 1 part starter with three parts layer until it is gone. Won't hurt the pullets at all.
