Four of my hens are 25 weeks old, I took some advice from an old local chicken farmer in town. He mentioned the imporance of the amount of protein in the feed, says he starts at at least 22 percent when they are 18 weeks old. Once they are laying stop feeding them that high because they will go blind. Right now mine are on gamebird mix it is 26 percent, no eggs no signs no nothing. He mentioned that if I'm not careful they will be seasonal layers and if I want them to lay all the time to give them higher protein Anyone know if there is any truth to what that gentleman said and what are mealworms for.
