    I feed all of my chicken babies the same thing, chick starter. And adults all the same thing, laying crumbles.

    I did when I have OEGB, too.

    I feed every one the same thing too- for the grown ups - I blend a 50 # bag each of layer crumbles, a gamechcicken mix like redneck rooster or kicken chicken or my favorite but hard to find uppercut and a new addition I am trying pigeon feed the green one and I add in oyster shell, pigeon grit and DE scoop into a big trash can and mix after each scoop.Somtimes I add sunfllower seed too. I feed silkies, OEGB's and seramas as well as a few layers.They get to free range a little too and get a few treats of people food.Some are in tractors.
  4. I feed them layer pellets, and cracked corn. Once in a while I through in some un-medicated chick starter.

    silkies need vitamin E and I don' think you are supposed to feed them too much cracked corn.
