    So when I put my hens on layer pellets, what do the roosters eat. Do the eat the same thing or do I put them on something else?

    The roosters can and will eat the layer pellets, they have no problem with that.

    Yep, my roo eats layer pellets too. Believe me, when you make the switch to pellets you are going to pleasantly surprised at how little they waste vs. crumbles.

    I tryed the pellets for a few days and not even my roosters would eat it.The only feed they will eat is the crumbles.

    Yes, much less waste with pellets vs crumbles. The roos can eat laying pellets just fine.
