Hi !
I found an organic non processed non chicken/soy feed that can be fermented to feed my chickens. I put it out fresh daily first thing. I serve it in three bowls to disperse it. At the same time I have hanging free feeders with corn/ soy processed organic.
My chickens seem to like both. Is it good for them , though to offer two types of the “same thing” ? Or should I stop corn/soy?

Have a dedicated feeder (trundle feeder) so they're not worried about their food each day!

Hens don't like to worry about their food source. It stresses them out. I learned this after putting out 6 bowls each day for my hens. They would gorge immediately, since they worried there would be no more food. Once I bought a Grandpa's trundle feeder they relaxed because the food was always available. Happy hens, happy life.

Also, what humans think is a special nutritious diet might be robbing hens of their required nutrients and regular diet. Please feed a high quality layer feed and pepper oyster shells only as needed when observing shells. The biggest issue with human women and soy is that it suppresses their regular cycle. Are you trying to make chicks? Or eggs?

Thanks for your feedback!! I am trying to make eggs, what I am doing is fermenting the Scratch and Peck, feeding it freely and feeding an organic crumble mix in gravity feeders as well.

Thank you for your response! I didn’t quite get it right away but your answer to my question was perfect. I am fermenting Scratch and Peck Organic Layer Feed, and leaving the organic layer crumbles in gravity feeders. My hens have access to one or the other full time.
