I am hoping someone can help. I have a mixed flock: 7 hens already laying 4 hens that are 4-5months old and not laying, they are austraian Araucanas with tails similar to American Easter egger I think. I was told they will not lay until 7-8momths. 1 rooster I was feeding them a mixed grain with lots of seeds and corn in it, also An oyster shell supplement for the hens. Then the man at the fodder shop Said a layer pellet was better for them. He said even with rooster and youndee hens that is ok to feed them all layer pellets. So for 3 weeks I have feed them that. They love the pellets and I have not noticed anything adverse. But is this ok? Could it be bad for the non laying hens or the rooster. I am pretty crazy about my chickens and don't want to do the wrong thing. Thank you.
