Hi, my pullets have been laying about 10 days now (they started the day after they turned 16 weeks). :yiipchickThe eggs are good, but the flavor is very mild - will this change as they grow up, or is it totally due to their diet? They are in a coop/run, and get layer crumble and lots of fresh veggies from the garden - zucchini, corn, green beans, lettuce, spinach. Also I pull grass for them and give them yogurt twice a week and raw oatmeal occasionally. These are my first chickens, but I have had eggs from backyard hens before, also kept in a coop, but only given chicken food, no extras, and the flavor of the eggs was much stronger - they were wonderful, and I'd like to reproduce that taste. I can't believe that eating nothing but crumble would improve the egg flavor. And frankly, if that's the only way to do it, then I'll stick with the milder eggs - my girls are healthy and happy and no way will I mess with that! But I am curious as to why the flavor is not equal to the backyard eggs I've had in the past. Any input?
