I'm Confussed, Scratch or laying pellets or both? Ok, I have been filling up their feeding tray every other day with Scratch (corn and wheat in a bag). But then I read on here about laying pellets and oyster shells. I let my babies out every evening for 2 hours in the yard to play. Plus I give them treats, (Bread, veggies, fruit, scapes, etc). Also, now we have our third egg since last Friday. So, do I put the Layer feed in the feeding tray or scratch? Or do I mix them 1/2 and 1/2 or do I put out two trays. About the oyster shells The guy at the feed and seed the other week said to just throw out a hand full on the ground about once a week. Does sound right?
