My wife and I are new to the chicken "business". Late spring we purchased a small coop (tractor-style) and now have four nice red sexlink hens giving us an egg each every day. We're feeding them from a small hanging feeder (Tractor Supply) that holds about 1-2 lbs of feed. Using good quality layer pellets. Supplementing feed with scratch, 2-3 cups a day on the ground. Problem is that every time we fill the feeder, the hens almost immediately begin digging out all the feed and throwing it on the ground. This has been happening for about 6 weeks now. Any ideas as to why and what we might do to resolve the problem?
