There are many ways you can go here.

IF the medication in the chick feed is only Amprolium you can keep on feeding it to them until they lay their first eggs. Or you can switch them to grower. Or go to a general purpose poultry ration like Purina Flock Raiser when they hit about eight weeks. Any of these will work. When they do lay their first eggs supplement them with oyster shell if you won't be feeding a complete layer ration.

I would go with the Blue Seal Grower Cal if that is your only 2 choices.
Now if the place you get your feed from is a dealer of Blue Seal Feed I would see if the have or can get Blue Seal Chick N' Game Bird Starter/Grower Crumbles. I believe that you will be happier using it.

Purina Start and grow doesn't contain animal proteins and fats so that is a big mark against them in my book. Chickens are omnivore and I believe that they need/ should have a sores of animal proteins and fats in there feed....

Quote:The Blue Seal website recommends the Chick N' Game Bird Starter/Grower Crumbles for 0-8 weeks, then the Grower Cal after that. My birds will be 7 weeks when I buy more...

They also state
"Chick N' Game Bird Starter/Grower Crumbles-
A complete, non-medicated for starting and growing chickens, ducks, geese, and game birds.

There are a lot of people the feed Chick N' Game Bird Starter/Grower Crumbles to all there birds. (chicks, growing stock, layers and breeders)
