I’ve been feeding everyone except new babies allflock and grit and oyster grit in separate bowls. No one seems interested in the oyster but I wasn’t worried because everyone had nice shells. One started laying about 6 weeks ago and the rest followed shortly after. For a bit I was getting 3 to 4 out of 5 nice eggs but then a Last week there was a leather egg broken under the roosts. Yesterday there were 3 under the roosts and I got only 2 nice eggs again today one on the floor and a hen that faked having an egg twice yesterday faking again today and only one real egg! I showed them the oyster grit when I saw the first leather egg and they scoffed at it. Yesterday I pretended the oyster grit was treats and sprinkled it on the ground and they again scoffed at it. Should I try layer feed or could it be because they are still fairly new at it and wait to see?
