    He can eat Layer. He needs to eat more than scratch. Even chick starter would be good. If his crop is empty, give him a slice of bread or a hard boiled egg, anything to give him some quick calories right now.

    yea if anything layer is better coz he needs protein and calcium to produce sperm and to strengthen his nails and bones so feed boiled egg and then put on to layer
