Hi, I'm still doing some research before I purchase birds next year. I want to have a mixed flock of meat and egg birds, so I'm trying to find out what other people are doing. One question I have pertains to what to feed the birds in a mixed flock, since meat birds seem to need a modified diet to grow best. Should I feed a general grower feed then just put out oyster shell for my layers when I switch to an adult feed? Or do I need to separate my meat and egg breeds? Or should I just get dual purpose birds so I can avoid musculoskeletal issues with meat breeds? So many questions!! Thanks everyone!
