First, I'm brand new at doing this so derogatory commens please hold back. I just want to learn. I have 12 chickens...only one is a layer presently, the other 11 are almost ready to lay. They are several different breeds. I have out on a daily basis the following...1 large container of Dumor chick starter which I'm trying to get them to finish off and then I will discontinue. In the run I have 3 containers...1 with Dumor Scratch Grains, 1 with Dumor Layer crumbles and 1 with Dumor Layer Pellets. You guys have already helped me so much so please be kind. If I'm doing it wrong, tell me so I can take care of these ladies wisely. I do occasionally give them mealy worms and have bowls out of grit and oysters shells. I give them daily greens, scraps and I have planted and grow forage for them in lighted trays which I learned from here and they love it. Tell me where I should make changes. The chick starter is only out there to finish off the bag. Also, I saw mentioned about giving cat food for protein??
