My chickens aren't eating their mash

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I started out a few days ago with the mash in the feeder. They couldn't give a rats behind about it, then there was the bees. So I emptied the feeder, and started throwing the mash and the crumbles on the ground. No interest in that either. But they do love the scratch though!

 

This morning I got the idea to soak the mash in water for a little bit, and gave it to them in a bowl. Viola! it was gone in a minute or two.

 

Is there anything wrong with feeding them this way?

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

No.  I feed about half of a days ration wet.  The rest they either find out ranging or fill up on the dry I have in the coop.
