Grown chickens?? My small flock is penned up in their coop (it's got an outside run with it) becuase we are not currently living at the place, will be there full time hopefully in a month though. I've been going over and checking on everything 2 times a day, and they are eating 1 full small coffee can of the layena two times a day and cleaning it up in about 30 minutes! I've got 7 small hens and a arunacana(sp) cross rooster. Am I feeding enough? Too little? Too much?? They still act hungry. I also got some scratch to mix in with it yesterday, what would be a good mix ratio on the two?? Oh and how much Oyster shell would you give them a day? Do you mix it with the other feed or put it in another container? I also got 4, 8 week old red star hens yesterday, how much should they be getting of the start and grow feed? And at what age can I switch them to the layena? Or is there another type that they need between the two? All feeds are purina brand feeds as that is all I can get out here. I will say I'm having a ball with my chickens, lol you drive you to the coop and you see all these little heads staring at you, and you walk in the coop and they follow you around like little dogs, the Rooster, CJ is too funny, he can't eat if he thinks your watching him, and he'll follow you around till you face him, then he squawks and flaps his wings and leaves, lol. He also can't just crow once, he has to do 5 crows and then he's quiet for a while, thought that was funny.
