    Layer feed. The calcium will not harm the rooster, no matter what anyone might tell you. I've been feeding layer ration to roosters for 37 yrs now without any rooster having problems with it. Keep it simple.

    What particular brand do you use if I may ask beekissed?

    I don't use a brand name feed. I get mine fresh milled at the local feed co-op and it comes in plain, white bags.
