Ok, we have Orpintons. One just started laying (she's laid 2 so far) out of the 5 pullets. So, since I knew they were close to start, I started them on non-med layer pellets, switching from the growth crumbles. Since that day, they have hardly touched the pellets, and they seemed to free range a lot more. So I feel bad like I'm starving them, and take out a bowl of the old crumbles, and it's like a flock of vultures on it. Should I mix the crumbles WITH the pellets? Or should I put both in as free choice, and monitor which one they like best, and remove the lesser choice? Also, what about our Roo? does it matter to him what he gets? He does'nt seem too picky, but the 5 girls do.
