    I know it's been asked many times before ...
    I have 5 big girls laying perfectly everyday for 3 weeks now.
    4 Polish girls. Only 1 laying, 2 days, 1 day off, 2 days, 1 day off
    These have all been on good layer feed and oyster shells and treats

    I am ready to add these to them ...

    A pair of Silkies, about 4 months old on Flock Raiser
    4 EEs @ 6 weeks have been on medicated Chick Start

    Yesterday I put them together for a few hours. All was fine but of course they ate each others feed.

    Combining all birds now, should I just use Flock Raiser w/side of oyster shell for all??

    We are building another coop probably for the pair of Silkies and 4 Polish girls.
