    We've had the chicks nearly seven weeks. The bag of chick grower says to feed until six weeks of age, so how do I start making the switch? All at once? 50/50 and increase to full chicken feed?

    After 6 weeks you feed a starter/grower formula. Don't start feeding them laying formula until they start to lay eggs. Congratulations on your chicks!
