    Well, when my bantam Puff was laying, I mostly fed her a little bit of scraps and
    some wheat. The chickens turned out fine! :)
    I suggest you should go to your local store and find some special pellets, with all their
    vitamins and things like that.

    Anyway, good luck!

    EDIT:
    When my chicks were born, we fed them crushed up Weetbix, or some crushed oatmeal.
    They really loved it!
