Nutrition comes to mind and also what you feed is probably not balanced enough? Frost bite?

True, but it's still the same stuff....  just packaged differently.

I'm going to the feed store today to get some all flock feed. As of yesterday the girls have seemed to leave my roo alone, but it does make sense about the 'balanced diet' with the food. Never though feeding the natural food would throw it off balance, but it makes sense. As far as the night time cracked corn, any other ideas for things to give them to keep them warm over night? Thank you all for your advice! Just want my hens and roo to be happy and healthy :)

Feeding a higher protein feed allows you to throw out some scratch and scraps without lowering overall daily protein intake. My chickens love their scratch. It gets them moving, and keeps them busy, and warms them up. I mix cracked corn with black oil sunflower seeds for my scratch.
