My free range chickens don't seem to like feed. They range in the back yard all day. I keep both crumbles and pellets out for them, and they eat a little bit. I've tried different brands. They do dig in the compost pile and get some wild bird feeder droppings. (They get grit and just started providing oyster shell). We don't generate a lot of food waste, and I do feed them a couple bags of spinach a week; especially since it 'winter' (Texas) and there isn't as much green in the yard. My question is, will they get what they need in their diet? One of them just started laying at 17 weeks, and the two little eggs look to be in good shape and the birdy-babies look ok, too.
