    What do you feed your roosters. Layena? Do I have to buy them a special type a feed without oyster shells? I'm wondering because I suspect one of my chicks is a rooster.

    Well yours are just babies right? You won't need to worry about layer feed for awhile yet.
    Once your hens start laying and do need layer feed you can feed them all the same feed, even the roosters.
    Also when they start laying offer your hens oyster shell free-choice in a seperate container and the ones that need it will take it and the rooster won't.
