I asked the feed store guy for food with a higher protein content because my hens are molting. (I was going to mix it with their regular layer pellets.) He was out of game bird crumble (he only carries it in crumble) so I saw the broiler feed and the protein content was the same (22% I believe) - but again, only in crumble. Weird. So I bought a 50 lb. bag, and when I got home I realized the bag said "medicated". Ugh. It was $16 too. I don't feel like lugging a 50 lb. bag back to the store. Should I mix the medicated broiler crumble in with the layer pellets and feed it to my 6 mo. old and 18 mo. old hens? Or will it hurt them or spoil their (not very many right now) eggs?
