So my chicks are growing up and I will soon transition them off of their baby chick crumbles to layer rations. When I went to buy a bag, they asked if I wanted crumbles or pellets? I hadn't done research in that area and never gave it any thought. What's your preference? For what ever it's worth, I have four hens, a BO, EE, Black Jersey Giant and a Cuckoo Marans. They also have a sizable area to free range safely in my yard.
