    I have read on this website to start with Chick Starter then move to Grower Feed and then Layer feed after that. My chicks are 10 weeks old now so I went to my Local feed store and asked for Grower feed. She said thats the same thing as Chick sarter. Is this Correct??? Please help!! I don't know if I'm confused or if she's just selling me whatever she's got

    Some feed sources don't sell seperate chick starter and grower. They only have starter/grower and that's fine. Our local co-op mills right at the facility, so I was able to get grower.

    Thanks. That explains it simple. I wish she would have just told me that.
     
  4. Same here. I use the Kent Chic-Go. Feed all the way up to the first egg.
     
  5. There is also another post on here somwhere that somebody said they sarted giving their chicks an egg cooked up, scrambled or hard cooked. One week later one of the chicks was noticable taler than the other. I just started it today and can't wait to see what happens with one of my girls.[​IMG]
