    What age can you switch them over to pellet food? Mine are roughly 5 weeks old now and their starter bag is just about gone. Can I move them to a grower pellet now?

    I've also got three more in that batch which are around 3 weeks old, just incase that affects any answers.. [​IMG]

    I think they should stay on the starter food until they start laying. But maybe someone with more experience can answer that for you. You will notice they pick out the bigger pieces, but when hungry they will eat everything. Good luck!
