    I have been having trouble getting Dumor feed for my layers and chicks at TSC. They are always running out. I have been feeding Dumor to the hens for two years now. Will it hurt them to switch feed brands? Is it ok for the chicks? I know, I know I worry too much.

    It should be OK. Just do it gradually. Mix some of the new in with the old first. I usually do 50/50 until I run out of the old feed. By then their bodies should be used to the new.
