Yes, I don't think protein would hurt them. They do go around eating what they want when they free range anyway.
I guess what if eat the most is that on commercial feeds is the list that they have o. The bags.
The list Is of things I have know ideal what it really is. They lust the scientific names.
Also on this 22% that I'm feed had a bit more Calicum in it than chick starter. I've compared the tags on it and it may contain but the minimum is the same but maximum is just a tad higher. I haven't seen any bad side effects so far. The guy that I get the feed from, he picks it up in bulk, also feeds it to everything from babies to grown.
My hens sure lay much better on it also.
I'll add also that I feed animal protein to their duet from table scraps and leftovers.Edited by draye - 6/5/16 at 6:53am
