Hi. We are newbies, and about 3 weeks ago we got 3 hens (I guess they are still pullets hatched July 2010). We have been reading online and books, but are still really unsure of what & how much to feed. We have given them feed we bought at the store (cracked corn, oats, etc.) that we were told to give them. We also give them veggies and fruit. I am not too sure how much feed they eat and how much spills. The one feeder doesn't look like they ever eat from it, but the other clearly has food out of it- but not sure if they are eating or flinging it. Now for the fruit and veggies they ravenously eat & take it from our hands. Does this mean they really like it? or does it mean that they are starving? Thank you so much for your advice! We really want to make them happy!
