Hey All, So I had been having a problem with my chickens laying; I had been getting 18 or 19 eggs a day, out of 20 hens. Then, once I took the rooster out(he has a sore on his vent area still, so still separated) I noticed egg production went downhill(getting anywhere from 5 to 8 eggs a day!) At first I thought it was stress, because the rooster was gone? Anyways, I started to cook their food, so it's double its size now when I give it to them. Within a day of starting this, the eggs have doubled and they seem more full! So I am happy with the results, I think they are too! My question is, when is the best time to feed them? What I have been doing is feeding them their cooked food at dinner time(5/6ish at night), and by morning there is still some left over- I might throw them some scratch(but they don't seem too interested, not like before). It seems to be working, but just wanted some thoughts on this. I have never cooked chicken feed before; I have read about fermenting their feed, I dont have the time/patience for that right now, I might try it later on down the road, I Just have too much going on right now. Thanks so much!
