Hi Focks, Hope you can help. I have had our 3 girls since Saturday. All seems great with 2 of them laying the very next day and all 3 laying yesterday. So not stressed at all with the upheaval it seems. My concerns is am I feeding and watering them correctly. I have been giving them the laying mash recommended, but yesterday I introduced Mixed Corn into it (Approximately) 5 parts Mash to one Mixed Corn and a small treat of dried meal worms I have also mixed one whole clove of garlic and 5 ml Apple Cider Vinegar into our 6.5 Litre water feeder. Our run is made of natural dirt and sharp sand which I thought would give them enough natural grit, should I do more? Just for our own reasurance from some better experienced hen keepers. Daisy our youngest daughters hen seemed a little docile this morning. She was the most active, using the dusk bath and pecking at the other two often. But yesterday afternoon (Monday) she was laying down alot and this morning stayed in the coop. I have been advised to give her a full check over (Check her legs, comb and vent) and what to look for, so I will do that this afternoon when I get back home today from work.
