    Hi All
    i have 5 chickens now 4 young hens and 1 rooster who just found hes voice. I am feeding them Darling down layers but i have noticed that they are only eating the corn and sunflower seeds out of it and leaving the rest. They do still peck around the coop . I am not such how to get them to eat the rest of the food in the mix.

    You could ferment their feed so that is is all mixed together and it makes it a lot harder for them to separate out the individual seeds.
