I just got my chicks their second 50 lbs bag of southern states medicated start & grow. While I was there I spoke to the chicken feed "guru" about a feeding program for my birds. She said to leave them on the start & grow with AMP until 16 weeks then put them on their all grain layer. She said that they sell very little of the traditions layer but that the all grain layer is their best selling product. It's 14.99 a 50 lbs. bag. One thing I forgot to ask is should I use the pellets or the crumbles? My birds have been on crumbles since day one and they eat it very well, but they do throw it around and waste some. Is it just owners choice or are some chickens picky over texture?
