I am feeding my chickens layer food. I switched from pellets layers food and crumble layer food, to meal layer food. It looks just like cornmeal or finer. I switched because I read some what they arte where that the pellets and crumbles are not as nutritious as the meal, finer grain, because they can digest it better and when they peck at the pellets and the crumbles they loose much of the good stuff., and meal does not. So I bought some meal fine grain, made from a place that sells fresh grains for all farm animals, it is a reputabl;e place, been there for years, and has animals himself. That is what they are noted forrrrrrrr, and have been fore over 30 years. What are opinions on the grain . Also, what can I feed my chickens that are nutritious. They say leftovers, anything, but is that just fillers or good stuff for them. I have just started giving them l hard boiled egg l time a week, and so far, they loveit.
