Feelding question

I have 2 chicken about 7 week olds and 2RIR about 17 week olds, they are getting along very good. My question is, what's is feeding food for both of them and help laying egg sooner. I'm a news in here. Thank you so much

There is no feed that will make your chickens mature faster. For the healthiest birds, feed them chick grower or all chicken feed until they begin to all lay. Layer feed has calcium in it, great for eggs, less great for growing chickens.

Hi and welcome to BYC. What seems to be relatively common practice is to feed growers feed to the whole flock and provide optional oyster shell for those that are laying.

 

all the best
