    How long do they eat this for? I am used to the agway brand and this is my first time using this. They seem to love it

    Some people change them to a grower feed for 8-16 wks. Others feed them chick starter right thru to lay. Either is fine.

    Thank you both. I am new to this kind so I thought I might as well ask people who use it on here.

    I used it with my original flock till laying age. They thrived on it with the addition of hardboiled eggs added every couple of days (that formulation is plant-protein only). It is good in that it contains only Amprolium, not antibiotics, etc. No withdrawal time if they start laying while on it, either.
