    Do you think these pullets are to young to eat layer feed? right now I am feeding them about 50/50 layer starter they are in with the big hens though.

    Thanks,
    Henry

    Putting them on layer feed at 14 weeks is not wise, I've always been told too much calcium too early is not good. I'd continue feeding the way you are 50/50 for a few more weeks.


    Had two red bassets here over the years Henry. The rest were always Tri-colors......

    Quote:Thanks I will keep with the 50/50 I was also afraid about to much calcium. We have always had red and whites but we almost got a tri color instead of this little girl but decided to go with her because she was older and ready to go.
