What to feed 2 month old laying hens?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Our feed store sold us grower feed for our 2 month old Rhode Island reds and Columbian Rocks, is it the right food for their age?

Yes.

Perfect age for grower feed
The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.

I keep mine on it for at least a month after they start laying while giving them crushed oyster shells on the side. I feel since the young pullets are still growing they need the higher protein.
