I used that emoji because you said something along the Iines of they aren't picking and choosing what to eat because you watch them eat twice a week.What?
Advice if I’m doing something terribly wrong is definitely accepted. It is my first time with chickens.
Ok. Well, I promise, they aren’t. I was saying that AT LEAST. And I promise, they don’t. I give them a bowl, and it’s empty by the end of the day. No ones type of grain left.I used that emoji because you said something along the Iines of they aren't picking and choosing what to eat because you watch them eat twice a week.
That is silly.
Or they may just gorge on it because it's 'new'.If you give your chickens some grit and they tear into it like starving waifs, that is verification they've been making do with less than they require.
Ditto Dat!I would get some granite grit for their age to see if it makes a difference.
Our chickens are spoiled!! Such tiny tongues and yet so many taste buds!! If your chickens are healthy and eat their food then it's right for them! My husband came outside eating yogurt and one of the pullets started pulling on his pant legs for some. It was their first time eating yogurt and it looked so funny, actually looked as if they smacked their lips! Chickens have so 'near human' feelings, it certainly could be possible that moving around because of the wild fires could be stressing them.Ok. Thanks all, I'll get more grit.
Mine have been on Scratch and Peck their whole lives (all are 6 mo) and love it.
But if problems arise, I'll definitely switch.
They seem healthy. I've never had a broken, wrinkled, or soft shelled egg, and all are glossy and plump. (not too plump, I've seen the brestbone charts)
I hope I'm doing right by them. I really love them.
