What to feed mixed flock?

I have 6 silkies and 3 golden comets. We had another golden comet that was laying daily, but unfortunately ended up having calcium issues and broke her femur so she had to be euthanized. What should we be feeding everyone to ensure that the comets get the calcium they need with their high egg production, and the silkies’ higher protein requirements are met without being detrimental to the roosters? I’ve read that all flock feed + oyster shells is good, but I’d like to hear your opinions. Thanks

All Flock, Flock Raiser or non-medicated chick starter with oyster shell on the side are all good options.
