    The venerable Holderread book says to give 2-12 weeks an 18% protein. Well, I read the bags, and one had 16% and one 20%, so I mixed them together.

    Is there anything wrong with that?

    Layena has extra calcium which isn't need by young birds until they are laying. i've read some place it can actually cause harm.

    I feed Flock Raiser from egg to pot, so to speak. Just offer extra calcium free choice when they are old enough
