So, my husband and I have always just fed cracked corn and scratch grains to our flock. We currently have 6 Rhode Island Reds that are laying they are about 1.5 years old; but we only get 3-4 eggs per day. We also have 7 black sexlings; 6 gold comets; 5 barred rocks and 3 Easter eggers that are all about 15-16 weeks old. They all free range during the day. Should we change their diet? I never really knew there was different food for laying. They also get small amounts of bread as treats, and any fruits or veggies I have that are going bad. I give them egg shells every couple days. Should all be on layer food? there are also 3 roosters; 1 RIR; 2 EE. RIR is 1.5 years old, EE's are about 15-16 weeks.
