Instead of making two of three topics I'll ask my questions in one post. 1. I started using a nipple waterer about three weeks ago. I have two nipples on a five gallon bucket. With ten RIRs. And I'm worried they ain't getting enough water out of the nipples. Am I just worring to much or would you put one or two of their old jug waterers in the pen. 2. Question on layer feed. I've been feeding layer mash or crumbles for about a year and a half. But ppl keep telling me to switch to pellets. Are they better or are they the same. I was told the chickens won't waste as much. 3. My chickens have thin eggs shells but I'm feeding oyster shell so I'm thinking they might need more protein. What is some stuff that I can feed em to build up protein. Thanks for all yalls help.
