My chickens are free ranging during the day. When I fed starter /grower feeds they would eat all of what I put out in the am before I got home from work. Now they are about 19 weeks, and I have switched to Layer ration. They hardly eat. I put the same amount out in the am, and only one of three troughs are eaten when I get home from work. I did see one of the kids feeding scratch last night. Maybe thaey are throwing out to much just to see them pick around. I am gonna make sure they stop that, cause I suspect maybe they are getting to much scratch. Would this cause them not to eat thier layer ration? Or have any of you experienced a lessening of ration gone through when you switch over to layer ration?
