I have a few pairs of breeders and I was wondering what is the best thing to feed them? I'm new to breeding so I didn't know if there were certian things that breeding chickens need more more than just laying feed. Thanks in advance!

ETA:
These are the breeds I have:
Araconas
BLRW
Blue splash marans

Layer feed or game bird feed with oyster shell. Lots of people use game bird feed for the higher protein.

Friends that have a big flock and feed organic told me to give the girls liver for a treat to keep the protein up. Says they gobble it up so fast, love it.

I just want to keep them in tip top shape since I will only have 6 birds and it will be for breeding. Thanks for all the help so far, who's next?
