    I would love to get some advise on what would be a good feed for Silkie chickens..they keep getting clumps stuck in their fluff on the back end and we wonder if there is a better diet. Any ideas??

    What are you feeding them? If they are laying, then the 16% layer crumbles would be fine. I put mine on Gamebird feed if they are not laying yet.
