    Hi,
    My chickens have stopped eating the pellet feed. They also don't want to eat corn / maize . Now they eat only wheat grains and greens..
    I wonder what is going on with them.

    Did they ever eat the pellet feed? Were they on crumbles before the pellets?

    They were eating maize / greens before and also did eat pellet feed once every 3-4 days.
    Now they eat only greens and wheat grains from last few days.
    My chickens are around 4 months old .

    Also since last week or so temperatures are between 13-26 degree centigrade.. and it's going to be colder in fall and winter.
    Shall I start something else to feed them

    Are you sure they were eating the pellets? Most rebel against pellets after being switched to them from crumbles.

    Take away everything but their feed. And you might have to switch back to crumbles.
