I have six pullets and 5 hens. The hens want to eat the starter and the pullets want to eat the layer. Layer's not good for them because of the extra calcium right? It doesn't seem like there's any way to keep it all separated. The pullets run with the hens now. Any thoughts?

I have been feeding the layer feed and have flock raiser on hand. I try to feed the younger ones in a seperate pen but thats no feasible for everyone. Sorry not much help.

I would read the label and check for calcium, my layer feed does not have calcium added and I have to add it separate.

I also wouldn't worry about it, hens seem to know what they need.
