    weird. Do u think anyone owns them or have they escaped and are living a wild life. looks like you could keep them in that barn if you wanted. they clearly like those perches

    Feed them layer pellets or crumble, free choice. Make sure they have a source of water available. And look for eggs in the strangest places! They'll find all kinds of secret places to lay. Gather the eggs every day if you can, so you have a handle on how old they are and don't accidentally eat a nasty one.

    Chickens are REALLY easy. :)

    be careful with it as it can expand in their crops if it is dog kibble. that could kill them
