Hello all! I so love this site...so much great info! I've got a couple threads going about other issues, but I need to make sure I'm feeding my girls what they need. I have 3 Silkie hens approx 2 yrs. I took them over for a friend who didn't want them anymore. They were a bit rough when I first got them about 7 months ago and then we've had a rough winter. I've done LOTS of research but want to check with y'all to make sure I'm not missing anything. I mix a complete layer feed with scratch. I noticed they weren't eating the layer feed pellets, I've since switched to crumble. Then I give them pieces of apples or tom everyday and lettuce or celery stalks for their greens. Started giving them alittle bit of mealworms every other day as a treat or some bread. Now that the weather is warmer they've been free ranging and I've cut back the lettuce alittle. I put alittle apple cider vinegar and probiotic in their fresh water everyday. They have been laying for me all winter, which I read was unusual, and the eggs shells are definitely stronger than when I first started getting eggs from them. Do I need to get oyster shell for them too?? I greatly appreciate any advice y'all can give!! I want to keep my girls happy and healthy...and my rooster, when I find a new one. Thanks agin for any help!!!
