    Hello,
    Need some advise, My girls just turned 21 weeks old this past Saturday, hoping to get my first egg'''''s soon. However I am at the end of my grower feed. Even though they have not started laying yet, can I start them on layer feed. Do not want to spend the money on another bag of grower feed when they may start laying within the next couple of weeks...Also I was told that one is a Black Silkie the other is an easter egger, the far one has less brown and has more black and a shiny blueish tint to her feathers......But any advise on feed would be appreciated ....

    Thanks

    Yep - no need to waste money on growers anymore and the additional calcium in layers will prepare their bodies for laying - no sweat.
