So, I just got back from a volunteer orientation. I'm going to be the weekend caretaker for the chickens in a community garden by my house. Anyway, it turns out that they don't give their chickens ANY grain feed - only what they can harvest in the garden. To me, this just seems like malnutrition waiting to happen. Granted, the garden manager goes out of his way to find them sources of protein, slugs, for instance, and comfrey leaves (they have a surprising amount!). They also get tons of apples, lettuce, and whatnot. But STILL! I'm really worried for the chickens. Does anyone know if this is okay? Edit: I should also mention that the chickens appear to be healthy. They are 4 months old, but are pretty much adult-sized. They feel a little bony, but perhaps they are still filling out. Edit: I just realized this should have gone under Feeding & Watering Your Flock. I can't figure out how to delete my post though. Mods, feel free to move it if you feel like it's way out of place!
