Greetings Fellow Chicken Lovers, I've got a problem. Just got in the chicken game a few months back. All has gone great. Well, until I put them on layer feed. All of a sudden, they're eating almost nothing each day. Granted, we toss scraps to them almost every day, and they always eat most of that, but they barely touch the food in their feeders. To let you know, they've not started laying yet, but they're supposed to at any time. They're pushing 4.5 months, and as they'd run out of that other feed (I can't even remember what it's called now - not the starter stuff but the inbetween), I was told it would be okay to get them going on the layer feed. My question is: Do I need to go grab another bag of that stuff I used to give them before the layer feed? Also (trying to think of everything I can), they're white leghorns and they spend most of the day in a 10 X 10 (or so) run. There isn't any grass left in it, so they're not filling up on grass. I've raised a lot of parakeets over the years, and whenever I would start using different kind of food, I had to transition them to it slowly. I didn't do that with the layer feed at all, but I was told I wouldn't have any problems. Who knows...maybe they just don't eat much at this age. And the temperature hasn't been extraordinarily hot around here. (I'm in Tennessee.) Any info provided would be greatly appreciated!
