Yellow one is a Giant Cochin and the black one is a regular Cochin. Thanks!
When they start laying switch to layer... 5 or 6 months
I use starter /grower for first 5 months
Does anyone know how old they are?
I'm not sure.
Buy a bag of starter and keep on going til you run out.
Switch to scratch (I do) or grower (other people) when they run out of starter.
Or if you want to be conservative with the starter switch to scratch/grower at 1 month.
Switch to grower. "Scratch" is more like chicken candy and has little nutritional value. It's meant to be used as a treat especially in winter as it will warm them up with the corn ect. But scratch is NOT meant to be a staple feed.
Okay, thanks! I want to feed them the proper feed. I'm close to running out of the starter.
