I assume that you're referring to the amount of feedings per
The individual birds should tell you when to do that.
Eventually, the amount of feedings per day that you do now
won't be accepted by your chicks. They will wait for longer
periopds of time between feedings. Let that be your guide
line. This rule should also apply as your chicks get much
older and are near weaning age. One chick in a clutch might
need formula for 3 mts. Another --4 mts. Don't wean all
together just because you've read some standard guide lines.
Let the chicks tell you. That ensures that a chick gets all
the natural nutrinents from formula feeding.---Dave
