    I have one 8+ mth old hen, 2 five mth old pullets and 3 three mth old pullets....my feed store only sells 50 lb bags so that's a lot of food that will go to waste. Can I put them all on one food (ie: like flock raiser or a grow out food) then supplement for the one hen? Any advice or suggestions are appreciated! Thanks

    Yes, you can do that. Also good is getting game bird grower, like Purina's Flight Conditioner, and using that with supplemental calcium in a separate hopper.

    Thanks...I lost my whole flock about a month ago when someone vandalized my hen yard/house. I'm ready to try again and acquired these girls recently. I never had this broad of an age range before and need to keep costs down but keep everyone well fed and healthy.
