Laying and Starter Feed?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
- Monkey Lookout
If you only have layers of the same age (i.e. no younger ones) then layers feed is fine. If you have a mixed flock, in terms of age, many members prefer to feed general flock / growers feed and offer crushed oyster shell in a separate feeder for the layers. Those laying will eat the oyster shell (source of calcium) and the non-layers will leave it alone.
