Can roos eat layer feed?
Yep. There's some information out there that says the calcium in layer feed is not good for the roos. That it settles in their liver and kidneys, whatever.
I find fault with this information. First off, every creature (including humans) need calcium; the males just don't need as much. Secondly, a rooster would have to live a very long time for the effects of too much calcium to show up and most roos don't live that long.
Again, just MHO.
Thanks! Good to know--- for future reference. I have no roosters now and I live in the busiest part of Atlanta, but---- I can smuggle a little hehe
Roos can eat anything and everything a hen eats. I give all my birds laying feed with corn, shell, grit, birdseed and greens.
k no one has to reply anymore i got my info
