    Hello eveyrone,i am new to this game as everyone else at some point. I hope to be asking
    you experienced folk vital questions in the near future ;-). Im in middlesbrough and purchased
    my first 2 chichens, a Blueranger and speckeled something at point of lay. Not sure how old they are tho,
    Large enough looking birds.The speckeled one is speckled on its chest, black and white both hybrids would be
    interested know there origins,Looked forward for advice on how much laying pellets per bird/week etc.Thankyou
    everyone in advance.

    Greetings blueranger! I have found that feeding scratch most of the time and only feeding laying pellets to start production and then maybe once a week to keep it going has worked pretty well for my flock of bantams!

    Hello All,
    Thanks everyone for there kind replies.
    In my first reply from Megan Amber, you mentioned 'Scratch'.
    Is that an american term, that they call here in the Uk 'Mash'.
    crumble pelletts??. Sorry but i did say 'New to this game'..[​IMG]
    PS. My birds are in their new home on my allotment. They have
    enjoyed there first few nights at there hand made hotel.

    Cheers and Thanks All. Blueranger
