Hi everyone! Chicken newbie here. =) We just got our first chickens two weeks ago and as they're getting bigger, I'm curious of what/how much to feed them. For example, my old food storage system was broken into by a group of destructive mice. The containers that weren't obviously broken into contained rice (brown and white) and oats. After consulting the internet, I decided rather than pitching it, I'd grind it up in my KitchenAid grinder and throw it in the supplement their feed. But, of course, it got me curious. How much of this stuff are you supposed to give chickens? I've got a bunch of red wigglers coming this week to jump start my compost bin, and I've read they're a delicious treat for the birds. Does each bird get a worm a day? 5? As many as you want to give them? I'm guessing, but not certain, that the limitation here is how many worms you have available, rather than what the chickens will tolerate. How about kitchen scraps? How much of their diet do you allow scraps to comprise? Most of my scraps (potato peel, etc) will be going into the compost bin, but sometimes my 3-year old will eat the entire outside of an apple and abandon it. Although my rabbits enjoy the treat, I'd like to spread the love to the chickens!
