    I just rescued her two days ago and I'm not sure what a "proper" diet is for a fully grown adult silkie as I've never had one before.

    Layers pellets, Corn, Grit, and some veg and meat scraps. Grit is important to aid digestion. Good luck.[​IMG]

    My older Silky hen eats layer crumbles and oyster shell on the side. She loves the same treats as my other layers, mealworms and cracked corn.

    My silkies don't seem to be eating their reg food right now. they love scratch and some scraps from the house. They are 7 months old and seem healthy. Do I have a problem?
