    Wow thank you all. About 2 weeks ago I started them on layers pellets. But they don't seem to be eating like they did when they were on starter feed.

    We give ours sliced grapes, dried fruit (I also put it in their warm night time mash), fresh fruit, scratch and cracked corn. My wife Terri, hand feeds them Crispix Cereal (she's a nut).

    I read somewhere that you shouldn't give dried fruit as it ferments in their crops. any thoughts?
