What kind of food to feed a rooster?

Roosters, of course, don't lay eggs. Therefore,

their calcium requirements are much lower than laying

hens. Overdosing with calcium will have predictably

deleterious health effects, including kidney disease.

Chicken feeds are designed for the poultry industry,

where roosters are expendable. Nobody concerns

themselves with the longevity or health of the

rooster, because it has no effect on profit.

Therefore, there is no dedicated rooster feed.

Your best bet is a wild game bird feed, which does

not include a high calcium content. At Sunnyskies

Bird Sanctuary, we use Cochecton Mills Wild Game

Feed.
