I have 4 laying hens.. I was told they only need "Scratch feed" so I have that in a feeder and since they stay in the coop I spread it across the floor of the coop a couple times a day.. "I read that they should never be bored." I gave them carrots yesterday, as a treat. Earlier I took fried egg shells because I was reading about the eggs and oyster shells on here. I just want my babe's to be happy and well fed. Do they need anything else to eat/do?? This is my first flock ever, by the way! Any info is very much appreciated!!
