Start and Grow vs Big girl feed


Jul 18, 2017

hi, my two silver Wyandottes, maybe 10 months old, are eating a combo of Start and Grow and layer pellets with grit. Should I continue this regime or try to switch them over to pellets. Thanks
They are definitely ready to be off of chick starter entirely, but I have read more and more about the benefits of a higher protein layer feed, especially going into winter. I don't know what layer pellets you're feeding, but I've noticed a huge difference with switching my girls to 18% (typical layer pellets are 16%). Some All Flock feeds are 20% and might be a great option if you provide added calcium.

Also, if they have access to dirt/the outside, they don't need grit.
