Pellets or crushed layer feed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
If my girls are hungry enough will they eat the pellets? They came from crushed feed. They roam our urban backyard and I feed about 3 cups morning and night for 5 hens. They don't come running for food, just scraps.

Adult birds should have no problems eating pellets... And it's best to offer food free choice all day not portioned out...

@meepbeep I was leaving food out but I have no where to hang, not a good coop design. I have city birds also if I leave it out. Could the chickens prefer crumble and stick their beaks up at pellets? If they are hungry they will eat it right?

Yeah they will eat it if that is all that is offered...
