When i started to raise chickens i went to see my neighbor who has a small flock of rir's. He said that he does not feed them anything, they feed themselves free ranging.He gives them a little cracked corn sometimes as a treat. Is that what ya'll call scratch? I figured that I wouldn't have to feed them much because I free range mine also. I figured i would always keep some feed in their feeder just to make sure they are eating well. They eat a good amount of feed even though they free range all day. What are your thoughts?
