Should I stay with starter feed or go to layer and chopped corn?

I am new at raising chickens. I have 6 girls and they are now 9 1/2 and 10 1/2 weeks old. I am almost out of starter feed and needed to know if they need to stay on starter feed or can I now purchase layer feed?
No it is too early for layer feed. It would be too much calcium for their little bodies.
I would do a non-medicated grower until they are all laying eggs, then switch to a layer. The layer has calcium which is not good for non-laying birds so you don't want to start too early.
