Hi ya'll, So... It seems that my chickens and ducks just can't get enough food. We have 7 chickens and 3 ducks... I feed them layer pellets in the morning and later afternoon, they free range and they get scraps of veggies and leftovers when we have them.... I would leave the food out for free access but they literally devour anything I put in front of them... they seem to be flying through bags of food, so my husband is frustrated spending so much on layer pellets than getting a couple of eggs a day... Does not seem very cost efficient. anytime I walk into the yard they squawk and flap and follow me like my shadow like they are absolutely starving. I absolutely adore it and love my chickens not only for eggs but as pets... But than also feel concerned... Are they not getting enough to eat?.. With them free ranging I didn't expect them to be so food obsessive. Is there something were doing wrong? Is there any advice on better ways to feed or even suggestions on where to buy organic feed that won't be quite as harsh on the pockets? I apologize for the lack of knowledge as this is our first year with chickens so we are learning. We want to have a happy flock, but need to be smart about our finances and we want to make sure we are doing it the best way possible. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your understanding, I hope I am not repeating a thread!
