Whats the difference between laying pellets and laying crumb . Any advantage ?
Well laying pellets waste less feed, but they are better for standard breeds. The laying crumbles are better for the bantam chickens as they are easier to eat.
Here is a thread. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=76772&p=1
Quote:I have NO wasting not what so ever . I DO NOT put feed in the coop area . Feeders are only outside and what is scratched out , lands on the ground , so they enjoy the scratching and pecking their feed off the ground . LOL I also have bantams and they eat the regular laying pellets as well as the rest of the flock .
I fill Pellet containers early in the morning , also Treats in Mid afternoon and replenish the feed around 5:00 - 6:00 PM so they constantly have available food . and naturally water . I have (2) 5 gallon buckets one at each end of the run area and 2 - 2 gallon containers one inside the coop and one under the coop in the shade . Which are refilled like twice during the day , and replenished late evenings ...
