Husband bought us chickens two weeks ago. We have 4 chickens and each is 4 months old so not quite egg laying age but not baby chicks either. The woman I bought them from told me she was using "egg layer" when I asked but I haven't been able to find anything like that in the store. It looked like granola basically so i just bought a 5lb bag of purina flock raiser because it looked the closest.
I'd like to know what they SHOULD be eating? I want to encourage foraging and stuff like that and stay close to a natural diet that isnt just corn based. I have seen some recipes for organic feed and such but it would be nice right now to just go and buy a large bag of something. Any suggestions?
