    I have 8 hens that have been laying for 3 weeks now. They are on Layena. I have 18 pullets that are on the Start and Grow. I would like them to be able to free range now and all to be in the same coop now. How do I handle the feed differences? Thanks.

    Flock Raiser or All Flock Whatever your feed store calls it.

    How old are the pullets?

    I have a mixed coop right now and I mix Layena with Flock Raiser. I watch to see who is eating what and the youngin's for the most part stick with the Flock Raiser.

    The pullets are 10 weeks. I could mix but would prefer one feed if possible. Does Flock Raiser work for the Layers? I have it to for my ducks.
