    Today was the first day of school and I didn't have time to feed my flock. So my dad and mom did it for me. Well my dad stepped outside and heard a funny noise. As he got closer he saw our youngest white crested polish stick his head up and CROW a very small crow BUT it was a CROW!!!!!!! I went out there after school and looked at him. He is pure black instead of grey like our other one and he has BIG wattles and a crooked cone AND he has baby spurs coming in. He chases all the hens except for my buff orpington. She keeps walking around with her wings a little pulled out from her body! Well i am hoping he will stay nice and quiet!!!

    nah, i think laying feed is allright for all chickens!!
    I feed all my chickens layer feed!!
    IHow old are your hens? ive noticed the earlier you start with lauing feed the earlier they start and the bugger the eggs are!!
