Same feed, unless you want to finish them on a meat maker ration.

But don't hens need more calcium for the egg shells? Would that do harm to the rooster's kidneys?

The roosters do fine on layer feed. Spotted Crow, I don't think it is the same issue as with chicks who have developing/growing organs. I don't use layer feed anymore but I have in the past and have never seen any ill effects on my roosters.
