Has anyone mixed layer mash and cracked corn? Is this ok

Cracked corn is generally given as a treat. I would stick with the layer mash by itself with oyster shells offered free choice.

 

Just My Opinion:)

Why cut your layer mash?

 

By adding cracked corn to the mash your depleting proteins and amino acids like methionine and lysine which are needed for health poultry.
