    Hey Daniel! [​IMG]
    Haven't seen ya on the forum in awhile! [​IMG]

    You can switch them over to layer pellets, they're old enough. Some people like to wait until they start laying but I always start them on pellets around 3-4 months.

    At the moment I am feeding my younger chickens and guineas: 4 scoops of wheat seed, 1 scoop of Layer Pellets and 1 scoop of Grower Crumbles. [​IMG]
    Best of luck! [​IMG]

    What I would do is: Mix the Grower with the Pellets so they can start to get used to the other feed. [​IMG]
