    Since all of your girls are either laying or pretty close you can feed layer to all of them including the rooster. If you wind up getting younger chickens later down the road you can feed all of them non-medicated grower feed and leave oyster shell out free choice for the hens that are laying. You really only have to worry about pullets getting too much calcium since I believe it can damage their kidneys.
