Also, my "chicken whisperer" friend said that she keeps the layer food only inside the coop. The roo never goes in there, so he doesn't eat the layer food. Pretty simple.

As for Layena, it says on the bag that it can be fed to laying and non-laying adults, both male and female chickens. Adult is defined by Purina as over 18 weeks of age.
