So I've been reading on this forum that everyone who has laying hens seems to feed chicken starter food and then at laying age switch to a layers feed. I translated this in UK terms to mean, feed your chicks 'chick crumb' as we dont seem to have 'starter' food and then switch to 'layers pellets'. So I've ordered two big 20kg bags of chick crumb assuming this is what I need for some time! Now, after looking else where on the internet it appears I should do the following Feed 'chick crumb' untill 6/8 weeks Feed 'growers pellets' untill around 18 weeks Feed 'layers pellets' from there on ... Now my chicks are between 4 and 6 weeks. Can you advise if I should be moving onto growers pellets? Is this the same as what is described here at 'chicken starter'? Sooo confused! I may have a sight more chick crumb than I need ... maybe I should mix with growers pellets ...?
