I have a young rooster, about 4 weeks at the moment, he is a red sex link and I know he is a male as the males and females are different colours. I have a few simple questions i'm sure a few of you can answer. When they are moved outside with my other layers what should he be fed on, is the layers pellets they are on ok for him, I see it almost impossible to keep his food separate as they will all share the same coop. Also I have read about people keep roosters in cages and stuff, will he be ok not in a cage, and out ranging with the females? Finally when I collect the eggs will they still be ok to eat? Many thanks to everyone who reads and helps.
