    I have 13 new birds, 3 of which are 25+ weeks old and laying, the other 10 are 21+ weeks old and so far one has begun laying. I switched them all from grower to layer feed when the younger ones were @ 19 weeks old because that is when the older ones had begun laying. Is this OK for the younger ones? Geesh, I hope so... too late now!
