Newbie!

Hello everyone.  I too never thought I would be raising chickens but here I am.  I bought 6 baby chicks 5 weeks ago and just love them!  I would like to know though, is it ok to give the girls the Supreme  mix bird seed from Wild birds Unlimited?

Chickens should be eating chicken food.  Youngsters would be getting  chick starter.    Wild bird mix isn't formulated for chickens.

"You are what you eat."

 

Feed your chickens wild bird feed, and they'll fly away.

Chickens don't know they can't fly. But...you're feeding

yours flying-food.

 

They gonna fly the coop.

 

Seriously, chicken feed and bird feed are two different

things. Probably not the best ideal, for general health

reasons of your flock. 

 

But if you never thought you would get into raising chickens,

if you don't mind me asking, what went wrong? Me, I turned 

into a really old man a few years ago, and now I have a brand

new seven month baby to raise. I don't have a clue what

happened. This wasn't how I had it planned. You mean, like you

just woke up one day and you was a farmer?

 

What happened?

 

 

Spook...still doesn't understand his life
