    They should probably be on Chick Crumble Starter.

    You should feed them growers feed.....I would stay start with crumbles if you have been feeding them chick starter crumble or mash. Then get them used to eating pellets.... there isn't any difference between pellets and crumbles, just the shape.

    I feed the crumbles starter until they are about 16-18 weeks old. I think the crumbles are easier for the younger birds. Then, I switch to the pellets for laying hens. I am using Layena pellets (they have it in crumbles too) right now, but there are others that are good too. I do like pellets better. There seems to be less waste.
