When I ran out of grower feed at around 5 or 6 months I switched my new chicks over to layer pellets. I figured it wouldn't be long and I didn't want to be stuck feeding laying birds grower mash. Now my RIR, phonex and buff chickens are about 7 or 8 months and no eggs. I am no expert but they all look full grown. Should I continue with layer pellets? or can I mix in some grower with it? How important is the type of food anyway? or is it just the same suff with a different name?
