Need some advice - Have 8 - 20 week old hens. Mixed group... BO, RIR, Black, and EE's They just started laying and I think only two (BO's) are laying at this time. I assume they start at different times and this is no reason for concern? Have just switched from Grower to Layer feed when I saw the first eggs. Q : All eating layer pellets now...OK? I leave feeder out and loaded 24/7..... They are all fat as pigs... They get 6-8 hours free ranging daily..... bu.t access to run and feed 24/7. Q: Should I leave and endless supply of feed out for them now or should I limit to a daily ration given the free range time? Q: Given free range time, how much layer feed would you expect 8 hens to consume per Day/week? My first group. I would say they are definitely on the heavy side. Don't want to over feed and save some $ if possible.
