    I have 4 hens and a roo, all around 2 months old. When I start giving the hens laying mash, is the roo going to know not to eat the laying mash and to eat different food. I am probably going to have there feeder full of laying mash and give them a scoop of cracked corn on the ground every day. Do I need to have another feeder with normal chicken feed for the roo to eat?

    Your roo will be fine with the same foods your hens are eating... Or at least ours always have been [​IMG]
