    How do you feed a mixed flock of layers/meaties? Do you blend the layer crumble and the grower ration?

    My advice is to separate them.

    i agree with miss_thenorth....keep them separated. their food needs are different and the poop factor is not good for layers. disease could be an issue.

    I would say that if you are going to keep them together go with the Layer food. You will end up with a leaner meat bird instead of fat layers.
