Hen not laying - Page 3

post #21 of 22

Mine eat it very well, but I went from chick starter to flock raiser, so they are used to crumbles.

I keep it available 24/7 in a hanging feeder in the coop, but they absolutely love it "wet", a lot of times I use this as a "treat". I mix some with warm water - a little at a time to the consistency of thick oatmeal and put it on a large plate. I give this to them in the run, they think I have made something special for them:P I only mix enough that can be eaten within a short time (usually lasts about 15mins) mine are piglets sometimes.

 

BTW continue to give the oyster shell free choice, they will need that.

Layer feed is usually about 16% protein...minimal for protein when used and only food source.


That is what I was wondering as well. I can't find info on the Ags Game Bird Seed, google keeps giving me TCM game bird conditioner 

I found http://agserviceseeds.com/ but they don't list any poultry feed.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
