When do I switch to Egg Layer from Grower?

My blue cochins. When this picture was taken she was eating "Grower"
"When do I switch from Grower to Layer?"

I feed my babies "Starter" until about 8 weeks.

Then I switch to "Grower Mash" until they are fully "feathered out" about 20 weeks.

Next I switch them over to "Layer Pellet" I do not use "Layer crumble or mash".

I also mix in some:
Black Sunflower Seeds
Cracked Corn
Flax Seed
GameBird Pellets (higher in protein)

There are lots of ways to feed your birds. This is just one suggestion.

I'm 27 and I'm kind of cynical and kind of a jerk. I'm not a big fan of people in a general sense, but beyond that I find myself continually terrified by anyone that can be classified as a teen. You, however, are different, and I hope you realize that. After stumbling upon your blog and clicking through the archives, I'm so delighted that kids like you exist. Though, I hate to call you a kid, because you seem wise and grounded beyond your 14 years. Please for the love of god keep up the good work, and keep spreading the word.
