    I have a bag of broiler krumb left over from my meat birds. I was wondering if it would be alright to feed to my layers. Its something like 23% protein. I just really dont want this to go to waste. Thanks.

    should be fine, just be sure to offer oyster shell for the calcium, cuz the broiler finisher won't have enough or any in it.[​IMG]

    Yep, just mix the broiler finisher with the layer feed and continue to offer the oyster shell and you should be fine.
