Am I cheating my pullets?

  1. They started laying a couple weeks ago, and because I am cheap, I am mixing the chic go with the xtra egg 16. Will they get enough layer nutrition? As of now, I get eggs with strong shells, and they range from medium to extra large. That and the chigo has amprolium.

    You're mixing chick feed with layer, correct? That's just fine. The Aprolium won't bother them (or you!) at all.

    But, just to be safe I would offer free choice oyster shell, it's cheap and lasts a long time. They'll only take what they need. [​IMG]
     
  3. Thanks for the info. I just pulled a xtra large and a large from the nest, and the eggs look good.
