In the Brooder

i have read soooo many articles on what to feed your chickens. I’m still coming to one major issue. I have a rooster with hens and we will soon have chicks. I can’t separate them all. How on earth do I choose a primary feed?!? We are currently using layer feed but long term, I don’t think that’s best for our big boy rooster and I know it’s not good for the chicks. I raised our current chickens by hand in our house last year because we were starting out. I do NOT want to do that again and had planned for the hens to raise their own babies this year. What do I feed them?!? They also get wheat grass fodder, scraps, and I have oyster shells out. Even when I’m able to separate the rooster from the chicks, I still have a mama with the babies so I still run into that problem.
