    Hello...we have 14 hens that our 18 weeks old. Some are already laying. Just wondering what feed everyone has the best results with? Should I use crumble or mash? Should I mix a handful of oyster shells with their feed????

    I use crumbles, just because that is what they are used to...and I have a separate container with oyster shell on the side, they will eat it when they need it..chance are if you mix it in, a lot will get wasted.

    At least this is what I do..
