I've started feeding this to my flock of rir that are 15 weeks old. They really seem to like the textured feed better and eat it all, not just the grain pieces. The pellets are fortified with vitamins and minerals and they look great. I was planning to continue feeding this and just adding oyster shell at time of lay. The tag says for game bird and mature cockerels and hens not for breeding. Is this a bad option for a laying flock. Mine just don't really do well on crumbles.
