    The feed store here has weird hours and my chickens ran out of food. Is it okay that I fed them Medicated Chick Feed? I am only doing this until I can get their layer feed either tonight, Friday, or Saturday for sure if the feed store's open. No later then Saturday though.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Yes....you can also give them oats, watermelon, scratch, grass cuttings, bugs.
    I let mine freerange for a couple hours every day. They are beautiful and healthy and they eat less crumbles.

    Do they like peaches or strawberries?

    Just yesterday I threw a couple mushy peaches out to the chickens. They devoured them post haste.
