The only thing special about layer feed is that it has a higher level of calcium supplement, this higher level of calcium is only needed by actively laying birds, the excess calcium can cause health issues in growing birds and roosters or other non-laying birds...

Ok, sorry to be a pain. I went and got Purina Flock Raiser.  It is 20% protein.  Will this be ok for my two PRs.  Also, I have a 9wk and an 8wk SLW in quarantine right now to be integrated when they are older and larger.  Is this ok for them as well? TIA!!

20% flock raiser is fine for all of them...

Flock raiser is what mine eat for their whole life. I've got roosters, young pullets, and mature hens. It makes life so much simpler to just use one thing that is safe for everybody.
