    Hi guys! So my hens just started laying eggs and I wanted to know what I should feed them. I have a good feed I just mean like snacks and what-not. I know its good to give them high protein foods so what are high protein foods that they can eat? Thanks for you help!!!

    If they are getting layer feed and kitchen scraps, they will do fine. Give them your leftover vegie scraps and meat (without the fat) and they will love it!
