Do you have a picture of the bag of feed?
I would also be interested in seeing the feeder you made as well as your lovely flock and coop
I am going to put siding on the coop in the spring I painted it a dark color so the siding heats up and the dark color absorbs the the heat and heats the wood keeping there house warm. I usually have there feeder hanging from a chain in there run but I just got it out of the garage and set it there so I could get a pic.i should have took it with all the chickens huddled around it eating.
I forgot to get a pic of the bag of feed so got copied and pasted a pic of what it is. Its a 50 pound bag I got it from the mill over the mountain from me and the lady in the office said hers eats them so I tried it and its been a few weeks and they still haven't ate them I mean they eat a few but they wait for me to come out with the corn in the after noon
You have a lovely flock. Nice big window, I'm sure that helps especially in the summer!
I've seen those homemade feeders, it looks like they work pretty good.
In your opening statement you said it was the first time feeding layer pellets, did you mean just this brand or pellet form in general.
If they never had pellet form, were you using crumbles instead?
