    I bought flock raiser for my 14 week old pullets today. I mixed it half and half with the 16% protein starter/grower they have been eating. Then I read the label.

    It says it is 20% protein and for broiler chicks. Will my girls be ok with it? I didn't want to get layer food yet.

    That's what I thought before I read the label. Thanks for the reassurance.

    Some people just use flock raiser and leave them on it. They just put some oyster shell on the side so the layers can supplement their calcium.
