    i got some chickens from a market.they were living inside,i think with aconcrete floor and lighting.
    they are now in a house outsite.
    however they dont know how to eat anything thats not a cereal.
    they will not eat veg/ fruit scraps nor worms.
    i feel sorry for them but also i want them to eat greens for a better egg production.
    they are 4 months
    please help me

    [​IMG] , chickens are slow to adjust to change. Their existance prior to you getting them was so deprived that it will take them a while to become 'real' chickens. They will adjust eventually.
