    I do not have the same breeds as you but I feed all of my birds Purina Flock Raiser and then I offer a small cup of oyster shells for the laying hens to take when they need it. I seems to be working pretty good so far. I am thinking that the protein content on the broiler starter may not be what you need for your EF's if you are not raising them to be butchered young. I used Purina starter crumbles for my chickens until they were 12 weeks. Are your young birds completely integrated into the flock with your older birds?
    I hope someone with more knowledge comes along to help you out.

    No my EFs live in separate coop and other hens live in separate coop with roosters.
