I have 4 hens, 3 of which have been laying for about a week. The fourth won't start laying for about 2 more months. At that time, I would like to put out layer feed. I have heard that this has too much calcuim for the rooster. What do I do?
I keep my Roos with the hens so they eats the laying pellets too . I also give them cracked corn and tons of left over food scraps.. There aren't to many dinner scraps your chickens wont like including left over chicken .. I like watching them eat french cut green beans and Spaghetti the most as they think they are worms I think so they will grab a strand and run around trying to keep it from the others. I have Five Mature Roos and I have had no Health issues with any of them ..
