Do you think this is just because they are enjoying the much larger area to roam dig, scratch, and eat grass? I have a covered enclosed run, and we decided to enlarge the space where they can roam. Its not evening predator safe, just for daytime, and they LOVE it. Problem is, they no longer are eating their layer pellets. I have 2 waterers and 2 feeders so they have plenty of access, they just dont care, they spend the day scratching and digging. I do bring them a treat once a day usually fuit or vegetable scraps, which they devour and sometimes eat feverishly. Do you think they will eat the pellets if they really need them? we are still getting 4-5 eggs a day from the 5 of them.
