At what age should you switch from Purina Medicated Chick Starter to Purina Flock Raiser?
usually between 3 and 4 months, although it says on the bag 18 weeks. i'm planning to start mixing scratch grains and flock raiser in at about 3 months old so they get used to it. mine are already in a large pen and foraging so they have enough grit to eat larger pieces and grains. if they don't go out of the coop or have a limited run you probably have to let them get bigger than 3-4 months.
I have been raising my chicks on flock raiser from the day they hatched. They are being raised by a broody and I didn't want her eating medicated feed.
