    I'll be brining home some pullets tomorrow. Hoping to find some that are around 4-6 months old. Should I be feeding them a laying ration or something else?

    I'm not planning on putting a timed light in their coop. I figure we'll get what we get this winter and then this spring they'll start really laying for us. (I hope!)

    Thank you!!

    I bought some layer feed the other day. If we end up getting some that are younger, we'll swing by TSC and grab some grower on the way home.

    Thanks again!
