    This may seem like a silly question. When switching chicken feed from one formula or brand to another, does it need to be done gradually (like cat/dog food)? I'm very familiar with dogs, cats, fuzzy critters, reptiles, and amphibians but not chickens. I am still learning before adopting my own! Thanks!
