Thanks for the suggestion! I'll give it a shot when I can and let you know what they think.My best suggestion is to give them their regular feed in the morning BUT serve it up in a wet form. Mix regular pellets or crumble with hot water, let it sit for 10 minutes. If it is the consistency of cooked oatmeal good!
If not add water or more pellets as needed.
Even my luckiest eaters will walk away from eating scratch to eat the morning mash.
Don't let them out to range until they have eaten their breakfast.
Don't put a huge amount out. Just enough that everyone can get a 1/4-1/2 cup.
Best plan EVER!
I have a pair of pullets that turned 38 weeks without an egg this week. All they do is EAT.
Don't waste the corn! Carry it away from your chickens, to a local park or somewhere, and feed it to squirrels! Squirrels love corn! Deer love corn! Give it to someone who loves squirrels. Or pigeons. Ducks, maybe? Don't know if it's good for ducks but I bet they would love it. Correct me if I'm wrong, duck people!Throw it in the trash.
The days are getting longer. They will start laying pretty soon.
You can do whatever you want with it.So I have to waste the corn and through away my money?
