    I can get 16% layer feed or I can get multi-flock which is 18% and add oyster shell in a separate feeder. Which would you choose?

    are your girls laying yet?

    some of mine are, and some aren't...3 are only 12 weeks, so I feed Starter/Grower and offer oyster shell on the side...when they all reach POL I will offer the Layer Feed,
    just my could go either way

    Mine are all about 14 weeks so we have a few weeks. I do want to mix feed to transition them so that's why I was wondering. I just don't want the layer feed to hurt my roo.
