    24 weeks on Friday. The RIR started laying Monday, and waiting for the other two. I probably have about 1-1.5 weeks of developer feed left. I already have layer feed, thinking they would all be laying by now. Would it be ok to go ahead and feed them all layer without buying another bag of dev?

    I'd think that should be fine. When mine started laying, I finished up what I had (starter/grower) and then went to the layer. I wouldn't think it would make much difference the other way, either since they are that close.

    Yup, that would work just fine. ;-)

    Thanks! I figured it would be ok but good old Paranoia came over to mess with me.
