    Hey! My chicks are about 5 weeks old. They are almost out of their starter... bags almost empty. I have chicks about 11 weeks old I am feeding grower. Instead of buying the little ones another 50# bag of starter, could I just feed them the grower, which I already have. It would save a couple of bucks and it would take them a good month and a half to get through another 50# bag of starter. By the way, the bag says to switch to grower at 8 weeks of age. What do you think? Could I just feed them grower now, or wait until they are 8 weeks of age?
