    The Purina feeding schedule is usually printed right on the bag. If not, it is published on their website. Purina recommends no Layer feed to juveniles until they've reached 18 weeks of age. For good reason, I might add.


    When you are feeding a mixed flock, Flock Raiser, Starter or Grower is the better choice. These are feeds everyone can eat.
