Hello everybody! I DON"T feed my chickens the standard pellets that most people use, but instead give them a 5 grain scratch, cat and dog food, lots of fruit and vegetables and scraps from the kitchen. They also free range and eat a lot of insects, small creatures (lizards, mice, nestling birds, frogs, snakes, etc) grass and leaves. The main reason I don't give them normal pellets is because they HATE them and will scratch them around but wont eat them. is this an OK arrangement? They are all big and strong, lay lots of strong healthy eggs and are currently molting just fine. Thank you guys for your time reading this.
