    Generally there is not a problem feeding everyone the "flock builder"/"flock raiser" feeds. They were meant to be used for varied ages/types to reduce the need to buy multiple types of feed. These feeds have lower calcium levels, so laying hens should be sure to have a calcium source available to them since the higher calcium they need won't be in the flock builder feed formula.
