Hi there, I gave a dozen eggs to my mom last week and she didn't notice a difference between them and store bought!! I have to say in the spring and summer they were much more orange and flavorful. (My son wouldn't eat them because they had too much flavor!) but at this time they were free ranging all day. We can no longer let them do that as they were jumping the fence and scratching around the neighborhood compost piles, not so great for neighbor relations. We feed them organic layer mash and they get scraps from the kitchen, but usually only carbs and produce and some cottage cheese or yogurt, BOSS and scratch for treats. I just read I can give them other animal proteins, didn't know that. It seems like a lot of people go through a lot more effort buying things from the store and cooking treats for their chickens, I was hoping they would be a little less maintenance than that. What else am I doing wrong? I want to be sure they are eating enough of the right things. How do I get more greens? I pull up clumps of sod from a weedy area and throw that in there now and then, but that won't last long. Thanks for the help. BTW I have 5 girls and their run is dirt, if that matters.
