I was pretty sure that young birds shouldn't be eating layer feed; a guy at my LFS told me I should just feed layer crumbles so 'they would all be able to eat it'. I have hens, a roo, and 6 week pullets. I just told him, ok, then I don't need anything today. After a little surfing BYC, my question is should I just give everyone grower feed, or a mixed flock feed? And what is the difference? I always offer calcium supplement anyway.
