So don't expect much is what he's telling you. Free access to oyster shells and maybe boosting their regular crumbles to a higher protein "egg-maker" crumble will increase your chances of getting eggs. The won't produce much, if anything, until after they molt, but it's never too early to boost nutrition. It's great that they've been getting fresh veggies, and organic to boot! Hope you can keep that going cuz that's the best kind of feed for good nutrition especially with a high quality crumble. Good luck and happy chickening!Buttsmom said:Here's the answer to my questions I asked: They're egg production is just now slowing down significantly. I feed them basic crumbles from a feed store nearby, and they also get left over organic "veggies" from our csa crops. They are in molt as we speak.
