My darlings free range. I do see them eating bugs, and the ducks dig for things in the ground. Recently, I turned over a board in the mud to reveal wiggly worms. Penny Henny acted like she did not recognize the creatures. Veggies I toss in the yard often go untouched. They all beg constantly for thier Purina. Mostly, I feed the Flockraiser, and duck and chicken eggs could not be better. Did I somehow ruin their appetites with Purina pellets?
