    I may be wrong but I think most recomend the starter/grower until 10 weeks. then grower/finisher. Someone feel free to correct me if I am wrong...

    I think Dumor's chart on the bag has starter until 10 weeks then grower until lay, and layer feed after they start laying. That's what I'm gonna go by anyway.

    Quote:So my 4 month olds should be switched to grower now? They will be point of lay at the end of June.
