How much laying mash should I be giving my chickens? My eggs taste funny like the smell of wet bird. Maybe I am feeding them too much mash. Anyone got any input here? I need help here because this winter, I am going to be depending on them and they have just started laying. Do you think that the taste I am getting could be from mental block, laying mash or something else? I need some help. BTW! Guys, I am new to this.
