    Can I mix layer pellets with the regular feed? I have mixture of hens and drakes - do I need to feed them seperately or can/will the guys eat the layer pellets? I already have oyster shell free choice. Thanks for your help!

    You know, I just feed all my adults layer feed and I've never had any problems. The drakes seem to be just fine and it's easier than keeping the flock split on different feeds. However, I will say that my ducks' egg production is comparatively low to what it could be, but I think this is just because I don't bother with setting up a light for them. So you should be fine.
