    I have some older girls that are some great layers. I feed them layena. I also have some young BOs who are not laying yet. The eat the same food. Is this ok for the young ones to eat? Also they are 20 weeks old and still no eggs. When are the going to start?

    At 20 weeks the extra calcium won't hurt them.

    When will they start laying? Good question without a good answer. They could start today. They may wait until the days get longer and the weather warms up after winter. There is really no set schedule.

    I have one BO that was born around 4/19. She started laying at about 23wks.
