    I have two groups of bantams, each with a rooster and three hens. They are 116 wks old. My questioon is, do I feed layer feed or will the calcium in it hurt the roosters?

    do you mean 16 weeks old?

    Lots of people feed layer to roosters I'm sure. Mine eat it without any issues. You really should wait until they lay their first egg though. 16 weeks is a little young to feed layer to.
