I've been giving my hens mash(whole grains only no hops) from our local brewery (it's free) and they love it. I always have their ' laying food' available, but they eat very little of it(saving$$$), and they free range all day....they are laying well....they are healthy and happy.... So i thought i would put it out there for others to maybe go to their local brewery and see about getting free mash too. However..i am a new egg ...?????
