Ok been reading some of these post and I'm a little confused. I have 25 pullets, one that is laying the rest between 25 and 29 weeks and one roo. I buy a 50 lb bag of Layenea and a 50 lb bag of scratch every 3 1/2 to 4 weeks of which I throw out about 3 or 4 cups to them each morning and they do get scraps and the feed is 24/7. So should they be eating more? They look and feel great when I pick them up. Does feed consumption go up when they start laying?
