Phase 2 of my life, I now have chickens given to me from a neighbor that was moving. I think I have 2 roosters and 5 hens. 2 ameraucana, 2 orphingtons, 2 australorp, still working on the last one. Previous owner said they did not like the pellets so I bought crumble. They really didn't seem to appreciate either. I fed them a number of things for extra energy during those first two cold weeks, quaker oats being their favorite. I can carry the box through the yard and they will follow me. Should I replace their layer pellets that they are not eating with oats? Is this good or bad for them?
