    Okay until now Ive had all girls so Ive been giving them layer feed. Well come to find out my new Araucana is a roo, so is there something different I should be feeding him? Or can he eat the layer feed and be fine? At this time I can not let them free range, but I do bring them fresh grass clippings everyday.

    I have roosters and hens together and they all eat the same thing, layer pellets and scratch for a treat. He will be fine.[​IMG]
