I use only crumbles, Starter crumbles,as well as Layer, as my bantams are too small to eat pellets. Chicks will waste less of crumbles than mash and are too small to use pellets (unless your supplier has chick pellets? Have not seen them, but they may exist in some areas. Nothing happens if your hens get into Starter, but because of Medication, some might worry about the very low dose of Amprolium (not as worrisome, like other medications). I use the first eggs from pullets, even though they are from Medicated Starter fed pullets, but would not sell them.

Not to worry. CJR

Have asked for Rog to post picture of "teenie" eggs--maybe on your Rattite topic line ??
