    I am curious what you are supposed to feed roos, if you have a bachelor pen. If there are no hens involved, and they are mature roos, what is the best food? Thanks

    I feed mine 20% grower to maximize their growth. The soon big the sooner they feed me.

    I've been feeding my roos 15 percent grower pellets. It was that or layer pellets at the store. They also free range so they don't eat many grower pellets.

    I have mine on 28% turkey starter for the last month or so-trying to fatten them up a bit more in the next few weeks.

    Thanks for the replies, I'd always wondered!
