    And the learning section of this board is amazing. It has a ton of information. But I like Storey's book about chickens.

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] If they are full grown layers you should feed them layer mash or an all flock feed with calcium in the form of crushed eggshell or oystershell on the side. Have a look in the Learning centre for more chicken raising and care tips:
