Layer feed is for actively laying birds ONLY. Growing chicks need unlimited access to a grower or starter feed with at least 18% protein content.

Too much calcium. Not good for birds that aren't utilizing it for eggshell production. It can't be expelled, and will build up in the kidneys, causing eventual failure.
