Should hens get laying pellets year round? Mine hardly lay in the winter, so is this still safe?
Mine haven't had any problems eating their layer food during the winter.
I feed them year round, mixed with my different grains.
I give mine layer pellets, or mash, mixed with some whole corn, and some whole wheat during the winter.
Yep, they should get them. They are a "complete feed" meaning everything they need is in them. Most of us DO prefer to supplement with one thing or another, but you can definitley just feed that, if you wish.
That's what mine are getting, but they are still laying. I also give some alfalfa pellets. In their run I throw some scratch too, since there is no grass.
