I know that the food in America is maybe different from the food i get here in Scotland but.........in the morning when the hens get let out they get Layers Pellets for their breakfast, they look at me, turn their beak up and go to the grit bin, water bowl etc and ignore said pellets. When I go to feed them in the afternoon they get mixed corn thrown at them, which of course they love and sometimes the pellets are still in the food bowl! So, what I would like to know is, what else can i feed them?? I know I can't just give them corn as it makes them fat and they don't lay as much....is that right?? They get kitchen scraps, love cooked porridge, cooked potato skins with oatmeal and what not in, any left over greens and fruit etc. I have tried giving them layers mash but they dont' like it either but will eat it mashed in with the potato skins, but i don't eat potato everyday so they can't have that!! I also give them cooked pasta and rice etc thats leftover from dinner some nights. Should i keep feeding them the pellets and dont' give them any corn until they learn to eat pellets or should i forget about the pellets as i seem to be wasting my money and give them an alternative?? I am quite happy to mix up a feed for them but i do want them to get all the nutrients and vitamins that the layers pellets provide!!! Any ideas would be much appreciated and thank you in anticipation!!
