I got my first baby chicks for my backyard flock approx April 1st. There are two Buff Orpingtons, two Silver Laced Wyandottes, a Black Australorp, and a California White. I have been feeding them non-medicated Chick starter from Fleet Farm, some table scraps, and whatever weeds or bugs end up in their enclosure (which I move about every week to 10 days). Today when I checked on them, I found a small white egg on the floor of the coop (I havn't added the nesting boxes yet - I wasn't expecting eggs for a little while!). I am assuming the egg came from the California White, as it is the only breed that I have that will lay white eggs. I was expecting, based on what I have read from various sources, that the California White should be the first to lay, but it may be a few months more before the last one will lay. So my question - Should I change my feed to "layer feed" for the flock, add a supplement of some sort to the starter feed, or something else? I just bought a 50lb bag of starter feed a week or so ago, so it would be nice if I could use it up (about a month or so from now) before I switch to "layer feed". Any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
