    I just noticed that one of our young cockerels has started expressing his rooster love for the pullets in his flock and it made me wonder something. What do you feed a mature rooster? Should I keep feeding him the grower feed? When the pullets start laying eggs and I switch them to layer feed can he eat that too or should I keep a feeder with grower feed in the run for him? Does it matter what a mature rooster eats? Thanks for any info you can give.

    My rooster eats what my layers eat.
    It is funny how he will let them eat first most of the time.
