I have 7 month old pullets and I was wondering when can I start to feed them laying pellets?
My first three hens i started feeding them layers when they had layed their first eggs but then when they hatched chicks they had chick crumbs then growers then started layers around 5 months old so they are find to start now but also fine to wait until they are laying
Ohh okay then I'll just wait to they start laying cause right now they aren't showing any signs that they are ready to mate
And they are definitely 7months? Strange they haven't started showing any signs at least my bigger breeds started at 6months where as my smaller breeds started at 4months
Yes I bought them from a breeder when they where 6 months and I have a rooster that has been trying to mate with them but the pullets won't let themselves and they are oeg bantams
So they are probably just settling into their new home they should start laying soon
So far they are doing good, they aren't sacred of me, they get along with my rooster expect for the mating part haha. They are just doing great, I can't wait till they start laying I wish it would be sooner lol
Once one starts they all follow, you will be over run with eggs in no time I'm sure! Just be loving and patient as im sure u are being and they will reward you. :-D
