My 16 week chickens are eating free choice calcium like crazy. I'm about to run out of grower. Im figuring it time to make the switch to layer. Does this behavior also mean they are getting close to laying? A couple do go down to the ground when I pet them but it's not the typical squat just yet. A couple also have those red combs. I have just have experienced the eating of calcium behavior like this before.
