    I have been feeding laying crumbles to my flock of now 14, but have recently added a BCM roo, and a BO roo, and they are huge. Do they require a high protein feed. And now that it is winter, do the hen require a higher protein feed? there are so many choices...

    Thank you

    Well, I solve the whole problem, including having young pullets not yet laying, by feeding Nutrena "All Flock" and providing crushed oyster shell free choice in a separate dish. That's for the layers if they feel they need it. (Tchickens, ducks and geese all eat the same feed and it's good for all ages, too.)

    that sounds great, and has a higher amount of protein?
