i recently switched to layer mash after they had finished off their last bag of chick feed. but when they use to eat 1 lb of chick feed a day and i would have to refill the feeder every day, with the layer i give them 1lb. of feed and it takes them like 3 days to eat it all,before i have to fill the feeder. so why arn't they eating as much? is it the protein in it or do they eat less in winter? can someone give me some help with this issue? i just want to make sure they are getting what they need to get,especially through the cold winter. i also give them a handful of cracked corn most days and they also get yogurt or left overs occasionally. thanks for the help!!!
