    Hi everyone


    So i got three hens little over two weeks ago was told they were already laying , since we have gotten them we have not gotten any eggs , figured the stress of moving them from one place to a new home and flock stressed them some , our hens should be getting awfully close to laying too anyways i noticed that the one hens comb and wattles were a bit pale so today i went and got strike three wormer and seen this layer boost it had vitamins and electrolytes in it , so i got that as well with in an hour of giving them all wormers and puting the booster in their water her comb expecially is beginning to turn red and everything, i was just wondering if anyone else has used these products and if i continue to give it to them daily if or when they start laying are the eggs ok to eat, the package for the wormer just says withdraw 3 days before slaughter and the boost just says after 24 hours dump out and refresh with it so any information will be extremely helpful thanks

    I just found this one, don't know if you found a solution but omega egg maker by manna pro is a great helper 5 lb to every 50 lb of feed.
