Will switching to a layer food stunt the other girls?

    We have two girls that started laying about 4 weeks ago. When we ran out of food we bought the layer crumbles. Now I am worried will that stunt the growth of my other 2? They haven't started laying yet, and should be starting any time.

    If they are close to laying age they will be ok.
