Hi everyone I'm new here. I'm new to the chicken world too. I mean I had chickens when I was a kid but I never paid attention to them and actually learned anything. I just gathered the eggs and helped my mom butcher them for meat. I got all my chickens from the farmers store here they really couldn't tell me how old they were when I got them. Only thing they could tell me was they normally get them in when they as early as 2 days old. My barred rocks, black astrolorps, and Rhode Island reds were all pretty big when I got them. I say big I mean they only needed about 2 weeks of lamp time, until they didn't need a lamp anymore. I've had them on the crumbles for a while but when they eat it it just turns to powder. I'm thinking of going to layer feed but since I don't know if they are old enough. When I first got them it was in June. I'm just not sure, any help please?
