    Feed her as much as she will clean up daily for both items. I crushed the calcium tablets I had before giving them to the chickens. I found that the tablets I bought for me just sat in my tummy like rocks ( duh!) so switched myself to the fluid capsules.

    hi, i'd like to compute how much feed they consume for 1 month. is 1 cup of layer feed okay for an hen laying egg everyday?​
