    I have 2 bags of broiler finisher from my meat chickens. I dont want to toss it out but I wasnt sure if I could feed it to my layers. Does anyone have any input on this?

    I gave it to them mixed with their layer pellets-its high in protein so it wont hurt them.... I did 50/50 until it was all gone

    Just make sure they have some oyster shell or additional calcium.
