    Hey guys I was wondering if I got layer pellets for my hens would it be okay for my rooster to eat it? Will it hurt him? :rolleyes:

    No. My roosters live with the hens year-round and eat what the hens eat. If you're raising them for meat, you might want to feed them a grower to fatten them up, but I don't even do that. When they're big enough they get butchered.
