    Hi, I'm new to this too, but I listened to a free webinar at Mother Earth News and the speaker said that you use grower from 7-10 weeks and developer from 11 weeks. HTH

    I am switching to Dumor brand when I run out of feed.....so I am going to buy another bag of starter and that will be their last bag then I am going to get Dumor Grower. These chicks are 4 weeks old. They will be six weeks when they make the switch.
