    Greetings from Kansas, farmerboy1998, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here. What to feed your chickens? Give us a little more information. How old are they? Are you raising them for meat for egg laying? Do they have any access to free range? A lot depends on those answers. You can also check out the Learning Center at the top to do some research. Best of luck to you!

    [​IMG] from California, the best food for your hens is layer pellets or layer crumble.
