Reading one of the other threads debating feed and health and me being somewhat new to chickens, how are everyone else's chickens doing? Knowing how other people's chickens are producing would help me and possibly others qualify the health of their own birds. How many egg laying hens by breed?: 10 barred rock, 9 road island red, 2 amber link, 4 black sex-link and 5 isa brown... 30 total. For what it is worth, they are all hatchery chicks and this is their first winter. Average eggs per day, right now?: 10 Where do you live?: Northern Michigan Hours of artificial light?: None (though we have a 60 watt bulb that turns on about sunrise and turns off in the late afternoon to make the barn less gloomy, it is on for 8 hours) Do they have artificial heat?: No What are you feeding of significance including scraps, snacks and free ranging?: Their main diet is (by weight) 50% whole corn, 25% roasted soybeans (but we bought junk soybeans and are currently fixing this problem), 6% whole oats, 6% whole white wheat, 6% BOSS, 3.5% flax, 3% Fertrell Nutri-Balencer and .5% Thorvin kelp meal... based on Joel Salatin's recipe. To be thorough in this discussion, at this time they're not eating much of the flax, Fertrell, Thorvin and only about half the oats... it ends up in the bottom of the feeders and ultimately gets dumped on the floor... maybe consumed later but probably just buried. They get kitchen scraps daily and have a pan of oyster shells all the time. They just get straight water. They also have sod clumps and gravel available all the time. They free ranged all summer and fall but have been 100% indoors, on oak sawdust, since mid November. Any issues?: We killed a feather picker last week that turned out to have fatty liver disease and have an isa brown that isn't looking good. Everyone else looks pretty good with some feather picking issues. Again, the roasted soybeans we bought seem to have an issue, they will hardly touch them. I've never seen roasted soybeans so have nothing to compare to but in researching, they seem to be bad and we've been trying to force them since November (I should have listened to the birds, they new it was junk). I posted here about the soybeans earlier (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/841936/chickens-wont-eat-roasted-soybeans#post_12456526). I'm hoping the substitution of another protein source and ultimately quality roasted soybeans will fix our problems.
