I've had my chickens for almost a year now. 4 sweet hens - one RiR (EE), one Plymouth barred rock, one white crested Polish, and one Americauna. The 3 big girls lay consistently, The Polish (aka Stoopid) has never layed that I'm aware of. I wasn't paying much attention when I got the last bag of feed, and got pellets instead of crumbles which they'd had previously. They don't seem to like the pellets at all. I also got them some 5 grain Scratch. This is also, eaten half heartedly. (It's been cold for SE Texas, I wanted to give them the Scratch for a little extra warmth). Short of grinding up 50 lbs of pellets (not going to happen), is there anything I can do? It seems that they're doing just fine on the back yard bugs at the moment.
