    Hey all, our girls are 11 weeks old as of yesterday and I had planned to move them from the Dumor 20% starter they have grown up with, to the 15% starter/finisher but it looks like both of the nearby Tractor Supply stores are out. Do you think I should just let them have the 16% layer feed or keep them on the starter, or??

    The Dumor feed appears to have served them well to this point so I am not inclined to switch right now. Maybe I am just over thinking all of this which is why I am looking for some help.
     

  2. I would keep them on the starter until the finisher/grower comes in. They are too young to be started on layer feed.

    Thanks Sundown, this exactly the information I was looking for. I will stick with the starter until they get some grower/finisher in.
