    At four months, it is not fully grown but very close. If you have other feed, I would wait a couple more weeks to move to layer feed.

    Unless you have no other feed, there's no rush, really.

    Take it easy on the corn ration too. Corn is fine, but is lower on protein than full formula grower feed.
