I was wondering what people do for their transition from chick feed to layer feed. One of my favorite chicken books (I almost wrote Bible!) is A Chicken in Every Yard, by the Litts. In it they say to transition from a chick feed to a developer feed, which can be purchased or can be a mix of layer and chick feed (50/50 mix). My local feed store doesn't carry developer feed, so I bought a layer feed to do the mix. When I told them I was doing this they looked at my like I was crazy! They said I should just switch from chick to layer feed at 16 weeks. This is also what it says on the back of the Nutrena brand of chicken food, but I think the fact that they don't have a developer mix might be a part of the reason for that! Do others do a mix or do they just go from chick to layer?
