Hi, one of my new hens has barely eaten a single layer pellet since I got her a week ago. She escapes the coop first thing in the morning and, unlike the other morning escapees, doesn't come back in for breakfast (layer pellets). I like the idea of a chicken that costs nothing to feed, but I'm wondering if I'll still get eggs from her when she starts laying? I did search here but none of the threads about lack of grains or feed (in the diet) mentioned egg productivity (unless I didn't search hard enough). My land is mixed, we have lawn with a variety of weeds, lots of anthills, brush, and forest as well as a tiny patch of wetland. I doubt she's really missing anything nutritionally but I also don't see anything in the yard that's producing any kind of "natural" grains and seeds.
