    I mixed all my girls together and the young ones are 22 weeks old. I found my first egg ever from a pullet. But I have 26 pullets sooooo is it ok that they are all eating layer feed even though some of them aren't laying? I would have no clue which ones are laying but don't want to harm the girls.

    It should be fine. thats what im feeding one of my chickens that isent laying yet ist just that your giveing them extra stuff in laying feed that they dont need yet but it shold be fine as long as you have other choices for them such as scrach, grasses, and other littel snacks
