it's been more than a week since we switched from layer crumble to pellet, first we mixed the pellet in crumble at a ratio of 2:8. They kept scratching the pellet out of the feeder and left a mess in the ground.We buried the pellet with loose dirt, and hoped they will eventually start to eat it off the ground as well. But nothing happened. 3 days ago, we stopped treats - usually sweet corn, strawberry, grass etc in the late afternoon. Starting from yesterday we removed feeder from the coop and left them only water and pellet on the ground (there are a lot lot on the ground everywhere). They foraged but they still were not eating any. Almost empty stomach when they went to bed last night. We are continuing this method today. Am I doing the right thing? Is there any suggestions? They are only 6 months old and have been laying for nearly 2 months.
