I have a flock of eleven Buff Orpintons, two Rhode Island Reds and one Barred Rock laying hens and one Rhode Island Red rooster. I have been feeding them a mixture of laying mash, two-grain scratch and a mixture from Southern States called rockin' rooster along with lots of fresh veggies from the garden and table scraps.
I am concerned with the amount of wasted food that I have each day. I feed only what they consume during the day, but they go through it all and pick out what they like and leave the rest. I have not found any food that they will no do this with. As a result I have a lot of large pieces of corn, whole kernal corn and other various seeds that are left behind.
I would welcome suggestions on any type of foods that everybody will eat, or foods that your girls eat with few leftovers. I'm willing to custom mix foods too.
