    Hi all,
    my four girls are 18 weeks old. They were on chick starter since aside from layer pellets thats all I could find here. My last bag just ran out today. They aren't laying yet, but can I give them layer pellets anyway? Or should I just buy another 25 lb bag of chick starter (smallest I can find) even though they will probably start laying before I use it up?
    Thanks!

    18 weeks is fine to start them on Layer.
