    Hi, I'm interested in purchasing two hens. The hens have been given layer feed mixed with high protein starter? I'm interested in feeding chickens some greens, vegetable scraps. Would they be able to make that transition ok? Any thoughts on whether this diet would work well? Any supplements you'd recommend?
