    Hi! Our chicks are almost 2 months old now..we still have them on the starter/grower feed...what do all of you usually do at this point? Keep them on this? Any other inside secrets we should know about? They have all done so awesome...its been really a joy to watch them grow...I really missed having them in the house once we put them out in the coop tho!

    Any and all advice is much appreciated!!

    You can go ahead and switch them to grower now. I'm feeding a start & grow mix that's fed till 18 - 20 weeks. I'm also a firm believer in mixing some of their old type of feed with the new, making the switch gradually. Are you feeding treats yet? If not, you could start them now, if you want to. Just be sure to give them grit when you start the treats.
