but really!? You seem so talkative and nice on here! I HATE shopping. Or I used to. I find it so boring. But oddly, I like grocery shopping lol I think it was always just cause my mom likes to shop and would drag me along for hours 😂 I'm really awkward/shy in person though ha

I know you were quoting Sally's post but I'm like Sally too, hate shopping, find it boring, but oddly enough the one thing I do like is grocery shopping. I think it's because it's fun and I can buy whatever food I want. Especially now that I have my license. Usually this involves tons pf junk, you know, like cheese puff, zebra cakes, ice cream, cookies, fruit snacks, candy, cheez its, cupcakes, etc. Etc. You get the picture. But my mom just took me tonight since they're leaving and I bought like basically everything I'm gonna need/want. But anyways, oddly enough I did not buy amy junk food whatsoever. Not one single thing. I got entirely bagged salads and fresh fruits and vegetables, orange juice, milk, bread and peanut butter, fruit cups, yogurt, chicken, oats, etc. Heck, I even went in the organic and gluten-free section of the store (it's a decent sized area and selection in a front corner, I usually never venture into it. It's an adventure let me tell you.
) and happened up the seeds and bought them. I fall for packaging telling you it's the best thing ever, okay? 😂 flax seeds, flax & chia seed blend, flax & hemp seed blend. Did I need all 3? No. But I figure they're good for me and I can put them in smoothies or give a tiny bit to the chickens (not too much, that **** was expensive lol). Amazing. I almost bought zebra cakes cause they're on an end cap with other little debbie products and I was thinking, as I often do, "well, I'm getting all this healthy stuff. I can buy one unhealthy thing" but then right after that I told myself "I am trying to be healthy and completely cut this stuff out" obviously if that's the case "just one" defeats the purpose and also for me it turns into the whole box. LOL so I sadly resisted
although I'm not sure if I'm just nervous or cold or what cause it is kinda cold in this room but I think I might possibly already be craving sugar and junk food and if there is withdrawal almost experiencing it but I'm probably being a hypochondriac lol i didn eat junk today unless you count syrup on the French toast but normally i wouldnt even eat breakfast.

its a possibility, how old are they?
I buy Nutrena too. Used to buy it at TSC. Had no idea TSC feed was old!!!

I personally mix my layer pellets with a higher protein game bird feed. I also make sure they have oyster shells (free choice - separate from feed) and we save, bake, crumble then scatter eggs shells in the run for them to eat.
We buy our feed at the local co-op. It is more convenient for us (it is closer) and they don't have their feed laying around very long.
Hope they snap out of it for you.
I have been feeding starter/grower for a while as it's higher protein but Nutrena also makes Feather Fixer which is the closest ratios to layer. BUT. I also found out last week that Nutrena makes a higher protein layer feed!!! Our local feed store carries it but TSC doesn't. It is in their NatureWise line like the current starter/grower I feed now and like the other layer I bought one time before going back to starter/grower. The regular layer, as with almost all other brands, is 16% protein but this one is 18% !!! It's fantastic because I don't have to feed starter/growet anymore or all flock or anything like that. I heard layer is supposed to be the sole ration so if you feed a lot of treats and such you should feed something else as it lowers the protein but I am hoping that ths higher percent protein layer will be okay since protein seems to be the main concern? Sorry for babbling. The feed is called NatureWise Hearty Hen. And it is made by Nutrena and is 18% protein.
