    I have chicks that are now 10 weeks old. Getting day old's in a month. At 4-6 weeks old and ready to go in be put in with older chicks they will be about 20 weeks and ready to lay. How do I handle the difference in feeding? Older will need layer feed and younger will still be needing starter. I only have one hen house. Also, how long before the chickens begin to lay do they need the layer feed? Thanks for any advice.
