I added 4 new 6 week olds to my 1 year old laying flock about a week ago. I didn't want them eating layer feed so I switched everyone over to flock raiser to make feed ing safer and simple for me. Ever since I have been getting fewer eggs and at least one messed up shaped or soft spotted egg a day. Some days I only get an egg from half the birds. I have a dish of oyster shell out and they are eating it but the eggs are not what they used to be before the food switch. Should I give it more time to see if its the food or just the new comers that are messing this up.
