I'm absolutely new to chicken raising... But the place I got the chicks from, they said to feed them medicated chick feed until 8 weeks, and then switch to layer mash. (He only carried chick and layer food)... I just found out today that I should have gone to growers mash instead of layer. They're 11/12 weeks now and have been on layer mash for a few weeks (with some treats here and there)... What should I do now? Switch to growers mash? (Where I have no idea where I can buy locally so I might try online)...or keep on layer mash and add other foods to offset it? Please help I also went back to the chick store and asked about grower mash, and again he was very adamant that layer mash at 8 weeks is the way to go.
