Wondering what the consenus is out there for the %age of protein in a "complete" feed as pullets start to lay? I've read posts here that say they feed as high as 20% to layers, but I'll be darned if I can FIND a feed that's that high in protein and isn't a "concentrate" that needs to be mixed. (My girls don't free range and I'm not up for mixing my own.) Right now (17 weeks old) they're on Agway grower at 14.5% and I've noticed they eat feathers that are laying around the coop/run (they haven't been feather picking though). Wondering if going to 16% is a substantial enough change as far as an increase in protein? Was planning to start mixing layer feed into their current feed next week so they can gradually get used to it over a few weeks time. In the past when I've switched feed, they've had a good week's worth of loose poop even if I mixed the old and new over a week's worth of feeding. Would like to do it more gradually this time so maybe that won't happen as much. I've heard that Dumor makes a quality layer feed (@ 16% protein). Does anyone have an opinion about them?
