    Is it ok to feed pullets gamebird starter?

    I went and bought some RIR pullets yesterday, and the guy told us he had fed them gamebird starter since they were born up to that time. they are about 5 months old now. are they ruined from being fed improper feed? will it hurt their egg laying?

    Will scratch grains hurt my pullets future egg laying?

    I recently bought dark brahmas and speckled Sussex from a woman who solely fed them scratch grains. Would that have hurt them in any way? Will they lay well in the future? They are very pretty and very healthy besides the point. I've got them on grower now.
