    I have a full bag of Nutrena meat bird ration I hate to waste. My birds are a mix of layers (active and retired), a guinea, a rooster and a couple of banties. It's about a month's supply for them.

    Wont bother them a bit, just a higher protien. It has lower calcium so you will want to make sure you have oyster shell on hand for the layers if you dont already

    X2 you could also give them a little scratch/ cr corn too cut the protein down.

    Thanks, guys. I have oyster shell but the ingredients say it has more calcium than my regular layers ration. I'll pick up some scratch today.
