    Just finding out if there's anything better out there than what I'm currently giving my ladies!
    Many thanks!

    Here's what I'm doing for my adult hens and rooster:

    Subway cup of layer,

    Half a subway cup of grower,

    A lot of ragweeds and grass and whatever left over veggies I have,

    Wet it all down mix it really good and just give it to em'. Mine do great on it and when I do this. Sometimes I feel a little generous and put in half a cup of dry cat food and wet it down too. Also have a separate tray of oyster shell and/or crushed cleaned eggshells. They like to eat a lot of little bugs they find around the run too. And june bugs, they go nuts for june bugs and tiny little grass snakes. My month olds get grower that's been wet down and a lot of grass too, plus they get grit from the dirt.
