    We are currently out of grower/finisher for the moment. We have 5 laying pullets along with 3 16-17 week old chicks. The 2 17 week old cochins are a pullet and cockerel while the EE pullet is 16 weeks old. We has Purena Layena Omega Plus feed. How much can the younger ones safely eat?

    Purena Layena Omega Plus says to feed it after 18 weeks of age, yours are almost there anyhow. A few days or even from now on if you can't get starter/grower shouldn't make much difference. I personally don't feed Layer until they start laying, or I feed an all-ages food continually.
