    I have a small flock of 4, A 19 week cockerel, A 29 week pullet and two 13 week pullets, All are Orpingtons. We are currently feeding wheat and growers pellets as no one is laying yet. The youngest still need growers but the oldest needs something to prepare for laying, I also read somewhere that roos shouldn't have layers feed, So all of them have different needs, What would be the best way to go about feeding them all?

    I'd feed them all 18-20% Flock Raiser, and free choice Oyster Shell
