I have been caring for chicks that make there home at a 11-acre sustainable, educational farm nestled in the heart of Silicon Valley. Located School District land, our goals are to inspire curiosity about the natural world, cultivate environmental leadership, and promote meaningful physical activity and a deep appreciation of fresh, healthy foods. We have 20 hens that are 14 and 11 weeks old. They are there for education and they will be laying. They have a nice coop and big yard to play in. As of right now we feed then chick start, spouts, greens form the farm. The thing is we work with a lot of volunteers and I will be out of town for 5 weeks this summer I want to make should I get what the hens should be eating and not right. I don't what to come back to find the hens not doing well or to fat. I have not had hens befor so this all new for me. So what I would like to know is that you feed your young hens (spoiled or not)? I do need to get something that volunteers can give as treats something the hens can eat out of hands?
