Friday is the big day I've been waiting for for months, when I can finally integrate my older flock of 3 hens, with the younger flock of 3. For the past 2 weeks I've been slowly weaning the young ones off grower feed and onto layer pellets. By Friday they should be ready for straight layer pellets, but here's my problem. I have about 1/3 or 1/4 of a bag of grower feed left, it's the same amount of protein as the layer pellets I feed. I HATE to waste stuff, and since my 3 older hens have pretty much stopped laying for the winter (one of them has been laying every few days), would it be okay to keep mixing a little of the grower feed in with the layer pellets when all 6 girls are together, just until I finish off the bag? I do give them oyster shells as well so I'm hoping that could make up for any lack of calcium.
