Today we got our first egg! We have the 7 Golden Comets and of course being the first and not being home I have no clue which laid it! I'll post some pics later because the battery died on the cell phone and can't send or upload the pic. Anyway here are questions. 1) The egg had a small hole in the narrow end of it. Nothing was coming out of it so would it be safe to eat? 2) I've not started them on laying crumbles yet but I can easily go get some today as the store nearby sells some. But, I also have a rooster so what type of feed to I need to get to make sure he's eating well too? I've read here that Flock Raiser is recommended for a flock of all ages but what about with the rooster and layers? 3) I can get the feed from the store nearby and it's from a mill in the next county over. Do local mills tend to be as "good" as Layena, Dumour, etc? I wrote down the ingredients for the starter/grower/finisher (it was a bag that covered all three stages if I'm not mistaken) and there was no processed stuff in it. I didn't have time to write down the ingredients of the laying feed so I don't really know what is in it. I think the price is pretty comparable. I'm assuming I need to start some laying/different feed pretty quick since I did get the first egg. Anyway those were my questions and spreading our happy news!
