Hi, I have 7 Barred Rock and 10 silkies. They all have layer crumbles free choice and I fix them cornmeal mash with some oats and ground veggies and cooked rice about 3 times or so a week. I've noticed my silkies aren't putting on weight. What can I do to put some meat on their bones? I have one that just started laying, they all act good and spunky (the roo's). They all seem to be happy, poos are all normal. I'm new to chicken keeping and would just like to know what I can do to put weight on them. The silkies also get some ground up dog food mixed in their crumbles to raise the protien because their feathers, but other than that that's all thats different in the way I feed all my chickies. I have 6 BR pullets and I get 5 to 6 eggs daily, even in this cold weather. Everyone seems happy but I don't like to pick up one of my babies and feel that it's boney. Any help or advice PLEASE!!!
