My hens & rooster stopped eating their start n grow. So I switched them to the Purina Layena pellets and they won't eat that either! But if I throw a handful of our birdseed in they go crazy!! How do I get them to eat their food??

They're like little kids. They want dessert instead of dinner. The problem is, bird seed does not meet a chicken's nutritional needs. They need their feed to stay happy and healthy. It's like giving a kid Skittles for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sure they gobble it up and enjoy it, but it's not what they need to be healthy.
