Hello! I found a locally milled Non-GMO Grower/Finisher feed that we are currently using for a batch of Meat Chickens. I really like it and would love to be able to use it for our Egg layers/ Pullets who are currently on Purina Flock Raiser with Free Choice Oyster Shell- just would like some more experienced opinions on if this would be a good option for our Mixed Chicken Flock, and/or potentially Ducks!
TIA

Not enough calcium for layers - they need 3 - 4.5% calcium; some folks wait until they lay their first egg to switch them to layer feed, but many make the switch between 12-16 weeks. Ducks have a special requirement for niacin, but I don't know how much, sorry!
