    Ok so reading some old threads I saw where it wasn’t good to feed young pullets layer feed so here’s my problem. I have a 11 week old silverrudd isbar mixed in with my 8 laying hens. I started them on layer crumbles but changed them to flock grower or something like that so my baby wouldn’t get sick. Is that what you guys recommend or is she ok to eat layer cumbles??

    Use either a non medicated starter grower, or an All Flock ration. Offer a separate bowl of oyster shells for the calcium needs. You don't need to feed a layer ration.

    I feed everyone Flock Raiser, with a side dish of oyster shell. It works great for all the birds.
