    Has anyone else had issues with Del's layer crumbles? I switched my flock to this a couple of months ago and have noticed changed in their health right away. My rooster seems to be losing his beard and I have a hen that is losing feather in the same spot. My 2 RIR's have started looking "dull" I guess you could say. The red in their feathers is not as bright and shiny. I also have a couple of hens that have noticably lost weight. On top of that when I give them thier table scraps and other treats they act like they haven't eaten in a week even though they are allowed to free range 1/2 the day. I am definately switching back to the feed they were on previously no doubt. But I was just wondering if anyone had a similar experience of any sort? I was also considering the possiblity of worms? But I have never ever in the many years I've had chickens, ever had issues with worms. So I don't know. Any ideas?
