I am a new member of a chicken coop co-op at my community garden. The girls are fed pellets. I know chickens prefer to range in the grass, but these chickens are in a roofed, fenced enclosure with open air walls...so no free ranging.
On the positive side, it is a big, active community garden (vintage 1970's) where big compost piles are being turned with tractors and I can get fresh pulled weeds and greens any day I am there to feed them.
Does anyone know the percentage of greens versus grain pellets that chickens should have? 50-50?
I have about 20 chickens and they seem to scratch and peck through a wheel barrow full of greens in a day. Do they want more?
