    We're running low on our regular feed and have it ordered but need something to get us by until it comes. So my hubby bought pellets not realizing they were for layers. Our flock is mixed, some adults and lots of 12 weekers. It says 3% calcium, doesn't seem like much but i haven't a clue ;P Can we feed it to them or do I need to run to town and grab something else?

    Thanks :D

    It won't make them drop dead or turn into deformed mutants if it's only short term till you get your normal feed.

    Bwahahahaha!!!!! Okay thank you ;D I was worried about the calcium and something I read about it affecting their kidneys :O So it's good to know that it's not anything to be concerned about short term, thanks again!
