    Mine are about a month old, and have moved to their outdoor space (where they are quite happy, I might add).
    How old should they be before getting adult poultry food?
    Thanks!

    I stop feeding chick starter at 4 or 5 weeks. I "Sometimes" let them have it longer because I might have some ducklings that are late bloomers in that hatch.
