    Pig, hog, or swine feed is a great chicken food, especially when you supplement it with crushed oyster shell to enhance eggshell quality.

    Thank you, yes they do get oyster shells. Just wanted to make sure what ever is in that feed to make pigs grow was not going to hurt my chickens

    There is nothing in the pig feed to "make" your pigs grow. Just like there is nothing in layer feed to "make" your hens lay eggs.
