    best feed for turkeys?!

    Jumping in. My poultry grower I am feeding is 27%. Can my poults eat that? Or do they need that one more percent of protein??

    Pumpkin Seeds

    I give my girls a couple pumpkins split in half every fall as a preventative wormer. Works for me.

    How big chicken tractor?

    I think that tractor size will be plenty big enough for 5 bantams (which works out to 2.5 full size hens). :)

    Getting new silkie chicks and worried what will happen if I introduce them to the flock.

    Yes your flock will attack them unless you put them under a broody hen in the night and even then it is a gamble. I would brood them separately until they are at least 7 weeks, if possible in the corner of your coop with them in a dog crate so your other girls get used to seeing them.

     chickens ate medicated grower feed??

    The eggs will be fine, go ahead and eat them.

    Is two months too young for full-time outside?

    I would personally wait on putting nest boxes in until they are closer to laying age. If you already have them in the coop I would block them from use. It's a bad habit for them to learn to sleep in the boxes. No one wants poop covered eggs.

    I have a question....please respond soon.

    How long have your hens been laying that you are incubating the eggs from?

    Scratch is like candy, only in moderation. Roosters do not need the extra calcium in layer feed, it will shorten there life expectancy. If you have roosters preferably you should feed an all flock with oyster shells in a seperate feeder for the hens to eat as needed.

    My Magpies think they are pigs

    Ducks eat a ton. It's crazy to see the difference after you have only had chickens.

    How to stay clean and odorless?

    Sweet PDZ is an odor helper made for horse stalls. You can find it at feed stores, great stuff. I sprinkle it in my deep litter coop whenever I feel the need.

    What did you pay for your chicks?

    Chicks at our chain feed store range from $3-$5. Ducks are almost $7. Our small town feed store sells there chicks for $5-$6.

    tell me some best And most nutritious feed for my chicken ??

    Could you add some greens or hay to the mix of grains you are providing? Also soaking the bigger grains for the babies will help them to be able to eat it.
