Being a newbie to raising chickens, I find myself always needing advice. Here is my problem. I acquired a flock of Bantams which are now nearing a year old. If I feed them at least 17-18% protein, as in Layena, they lay fine. But people keep telling me I am burning them out and a year or so from now they will be done laying. Is this information correct? I really need some guidance on this.
