Hi, after visiting this site before we purchased our chickens for information, we have finally decided to become members. We just purchased 14 NH Reds that are about a 9 months old. They are so much fun. You literally just go out to the coop and hang out with them. I had chickens when I was younger but remember very little of the details. One big question we are having right now is what to feed them. As of now we have a mix of layer pellets and scratch. We have been throwing oyster shell and some grit too. Is all this OK?
