Hello every one. I am a new to the chicken owner world but my family and I are enjoying them a lot. Here is a little bit of info on my chicken family. We have 2 Red Sex Links (alphas), 1 Ameraucana (beta) & 1 Cuckoo Maran, (beta), They are all about 9 1/2 mo old. My coop is 4 x 4 x4 and side nesting box , it is up in about 4 ft high and they have a area the hang out I about 16 x 25. I have purchased my feed from Pahvant Growers in delta utah. I will add some picture of my chickens and the coop over time. Here are a few questions for now. 1.I have noticed that the 2 Red Sex Links are the alpha in the group and the other two follow them around every where like a personal body guard. I am only getting eggs from the 2 Red Sex Links the other 2 will not even go into the coop when the other 2 are in there laying there eggs. I get one egg every day around 10 am and the other around 3:30 pm and that is it. 2. Feed: the place that i order the feed from is calling it chicken feed. how do i know what i should be feeding them exactly. the mix that they are getting right now is. cracked wheat, barley, corn. they also get a lot of veggies that i feed them daily and they get to free range in the yard as well. 3. I am using staw for the 3 nesting boxes and i have sand on the floor of the coop to absorb the droppings. is this good or bad. and what other choice have you tried.
