    Can chickens eat steel cut oats as a treat? (Mine are 17 weeks old).
    Do chickens always lay in the morning? (Mine haven't started yet.

    Yes they can eat steel cut oats for a treat.

    Most seem to but not all birds follow that cycle.

    Re: laying - As Kevin said, most lay in the morning, and in my experience, mine are all done laying by 2:00. However, a few days ago, I had two of my girls lay AFTER 5:00. I checked and gathered eggs about 4:45. I checked again about 6:00 and had two more eggs that were not there earlier - Go figure. [​IMG]
