I have 15 beautiful 3 month old girls. I have been adding organic oats to their diet at the suggestion of several books I've read. Slow down their growth but keep them full so they will be better layers. I have been giving them rolled oats from the health food store, but am ordering from Modesto milling, they only have whole oats. Is this O.K. for the Chickies? By the way, I asked about chickens and rabbits a few months ago and it has been going great! The poor caged bunnies get to run free now and like to burrow the entire bottom out of the coop......I just fill it back in twice a week. We have hardware wire under the ground in the coop and yard so everybody lives happily together. Lilly and Clover the rabbits have lost half their chubby body weight from all the activity and share a bottom nest box.......cute! Thanks for all the advice. If anyone knows about the oats........I need to place my order today.
