So how important is it to make sure your chickens are eating pellets or flakes? Mine wont anymore at all and I think it's because I have spoiled them rotten. They get a mix of raw sunflower seeds, yogurt, raisins or crasins, as well as the TONS of bugs they forrage for all day (worms, beetles, grasshoppers). I mix it up but is this a bad diet for them? Should I be adding something else to their diet? I get an egg a day from all of them even though I shouldn't be, sometimes 2 (Americanas, Barred rock) and the shell is really super hard. I assumed I am getting so many eggs cause they like there food. I did stop giving them snacks and forced the pellets back onto them and my egg production slowed as well, so I went back to the snacks. Need some advise. I hate giving them bag food but feel like I may be not providing enough for them. Help anyone?
