Hello, everyone. I am new to raising and caring for backyard chickens. Started about 4 months ago with 4 Rhode Island Red hens, and 1 not planned on until later developed,(smile) "rooster"(I was told they were all hens, yeah). One hen can from a hatchery and the others were given to me by a friend who raised the others as baby chics from on of her chicken family. They are going on 5 months old. I have been doing everything to include cleaning their coop everyday, feeding them 5 grain laying pellets, scratch food, oyster shells and grit, clean fresh water everyday, 2 holistic snack meals of fresh greens, tomatoes, yogurt, veggies and fruits of all sorts, live an freeze dried meal-worms, fresh cut grass, gym set to perch and fly on, wood ash for bathing in, brought two fake ceramic eggs and put them in the nesting boxes and even walking around the coop area talking like a chicken!!..lol No eggs yet. Can anyone with more experiences tell me if I am doing anything wrong. Help!!
