Hello everyone, as many know I'm pretty new to owning chickens, have had my own since March and now my flock is down to reasonable rooster ratio's I'm wondering what and how to feed my roo's who run with the flock of 10 hens? I'VE HEARD/READ EXTRA CALCIUM IN LAYER ISN'T GOOD FOR THEM? IS THIS TRUE? Will it kill my 2 roosters. I did a search on the forum and didn't find much about it already posted. So here I am posting a new thread, hoping to gain some much needed insight?????????? I tried to feed Flock raiser at first with the oyster shell, even sprinkled the oyster with feed and scratch to help consumption, but I was getting no shell eggs?2 day, not sure if it was the feed or just because my girls have all recently started laying since Aug. 2, and over the course of the month 7 out of my 10 are laying and now again I'm getting a soft shell egg everyday, from a new layer I suppose, or maybe the same one as before I don't know I never caught who was doing it the first time. because it stopped when I switched to Layer pellets. Help what should I do with my Roo's and what about the soft eggs? Is it normal for hens at point of lay to lay a few softies before their cycle gets going? is it the feed? I use the Dumore layer. I'm very worried about my girls. HELP !!!!!!
