I had my layer birds on 16% Layer pellets and had some feather plucking issues on my Cresteds. I started them on 1/2 layer pellets and 1/2 game bird starter/breeder to add protein and that has slowly stopped. The game bird feed is 28% protein. I have found lots of folks who just feed their entire flock the game bird feed and give oyster shell free choice. Is there any danger in feeding the game birds feed to al of my birds, from hatch through layers? It would be SO much more simple to have one type of feed than the 4 was using previously! Yes, it is more expensive than layer feed, but if it's going to easier and the birds will be healthier, that's fine with me. It would also make it easier this winter when supplementing my free range chickens, turkeys & guineas.
