Quick question for all you 'old hands' .... Got 2 silkies who are out in the garden from around 7am until 9pm...I give them mealworms and fruit/veg etc....they eat the worms but rarely eat the fruit /veg and now never touch their own organic pellets. Is it ok for them to just be rummaging round the garden eating what they can find or will they become deficient in the things they require after time? They appear to be laying ok but what will happen in the winter? Do they ever go back to eating their own food again? Also...what, if any are the probs wth mice possibly getting into the run at night...are there health issues for chickens? Relying on you kind experts for knowledge!!
