    My girls are almost 10 weeks old now and are doing great!! How long do I continue to feed them starter feed? At what age should I start giving them laying feed? Thank you in advance for any advice.

    Here is a photo of my girls a few weeks ago.

    I give mine starter/grower until the first one lays, assuming they were the same age when you got them. After that I switch to a layer feed.

    I am waiting for my girls to get older also, 18-20 weeks, then switch. Good Luck!
