I was on the public bus with my mom the other day, and i saw an advertisement on top of the seats, and it read that you should stop purchasing chicken layer feed cause they put a bunch of crap in it like dead animals bodies from the animal pound! my mom was shocked and since then, last 3 months, we have been feeding our chickens just lots of table scraps mixed with oats and a little bit of bird feed from time to time (the kind with corn and birdseed in it). I have been having another problem with my chicken (see my other posts) and it seems that it may be because of what i have been feeding them and the lack of protien. should i start on regular layer feed again? what are your opinions on this? keep in mind, i have already spend lots of $$$$ changing their layer food into this new diet and the regular chicken feed store is 25 miles away and thats an awful lot of gas money!
