I am new to the whole chicken thing but several months ago I built a coop, read raising chickens for dummies, and started my flock. My hens were born on Feb 16 I bought them on the 17. From day 1 I used Layena medicated starter feed and they loved it. Just last week I started getting eggs and I switched my food from starter to layer feed. My problem is that the hens refuse to eat it. They basically starved themselves till I gave them some of the starter food back. They have laid probably 7 eggs total now but i was told not to eat them because they are still on medicated food but they wont eat the other food. Any suggestions? I tried to mix the two foods together but they just pick around it. Thanks for your help.
