    Anyone ever fed Rooster Booster Feed. I was at my local Southern States feed store today talking with the employees. I mentioned I don't have a lot of eggs because the hens are molting. One guy said he was completely out of Rooster Booster feed. Apparently he sells a lot to chicken owners during molting. Just wondering if it helps. He said it is 20% protein, I am feeding laying crumbles that are 16%.

    Rooster Booster is a company that puts out a line of supplements. One of the products is called Poultry Booster, could this be what your asking about? If so, It's not a bad product and the only problem I have with it is that is doesn't contain animal proteins.

    Thank you, I may look into this. I like the idea of being able to add it to 50lbs of feed.
