We are first time chicken raisers so we don"t know much, except what we can gather from the computer. It would be so great if someone could help us. In the last week we have had two chickens die and another doesn't seem to be doing very well. We have feed available for them 24/7 that hangs in the pen outside. We keep vinegar and garlic in their drinking water (we read it keeps them from getting worms). Every day around 4pm or 5pm I chop up leaf lettuce, sometimes with kale,and once in awhile I just cut up cabbage. Then I either add some apple or peelings and rinds from melons and fruit. Then the next day I add vegetables peelings and leaves to the leaf lettuce. Once in awhile I use iceberg lettuce if I run out of the other. We have 2 plastic troughs I put all the mixed greens and stuff in them and put the troughs in the pen. I chop everything up for them and if I give them carrots I grind them up small. My husband says that so many greens is not good for them and it also gives them diarrhea. They have an indoor coop for night and a fenced in pen. Is there something that we have been doing that is wrong? We could use all the help we can get. Thanks to everyone that took the time to read this.
