My neighbor recently has decided to raise chickens. He has offered to let me keep one in the coop for egg production as well. I am really considering taking him up on the offer. From the sounds of it, he wouldn't even care if I didn't do anything to help. But I would like to at least feed the hen. I read somewhere that I don't even have to give it the chicken feed - but just feed it bugs and table scraps. Is this allowed? If I do, what would happen? I am completely new to all of this. Thanks!
