    My 5 chicks are about a month old now ( have broody mothers ) and I am just wondering when I can feed them pullet grower?

    I am getting a big bag of pullet grower anyway ( for my adult hens ) so that's why I am asking. I still have a bag of chick feed to that I can wean the chicks off it by mixing half and half.

    Thanks in advance, Lucas[​IMG].

    I think labels recommend at 6 weeks. If the protein levels are the same you can transition now.

    I usually switch over at about 8 weeks of age.
