    Hi!
    I have some six week old chicks, and they are still on Chick Starter/Grower. Are they old enough to eat Flock Raiser?
    Thanks!!

    Yes, they can eat Flock Raiser at this age. Just make sure you don't feed them any high-calcium layer feed.

    Flock raiser can be used/is designed as an "all life stages" feed, so yes they are old enough
