    a good round # is 20 weeks of age for laying. Some individual birds may lay sooner, some breed can lay later. I never start looking for eggs till 20 weeks....then if I get one early, I'm more excited

    Quote:Is this a layer formula? I am not sure what 19% finisher is. I would assume 19% protein?
