    I have put two flocks of young birds together and there has been no agression issues or anything. My biggest concern now is - What do I feed a mixed flock like this? I do have oyster shell available on the side so could I just feed grower/finisher for another few months? The 24 week olds are banties and just started to lay eggs. Is flock raiser or even layer possibly better?

    If it were me I'd leave them on the flock raiser and offer oyster shell free choice so the ones who are laying and need the extra calcium have it available.
