    I stopped leaving pellets out all the time and are just feeding them morning and afternoon. I think they have become lazy and don't want to graze and find bugs. please any ideas?

    [​IMG] What breed do you have? Some are just better foragers than others.

    I have at least 5 different breeds.
    I was keeping layer pellets all the time
    I have lots of weeds mixed with Johnson grass.
