They can be a bit like children - if offered the choice between broccoli and chocolate, which will they choose? Corn and greens are really treats, they will get all the nutrition they need from the pellets so you may need to withhold them until they are eating pellets again :lol: Mash is just the unpelleted form of layers feed. Sometimes they prefer it. You can make a porridge by soaking pellets in warm water - they seem to like the consistency and it will get the pellets into them again. :D

We had trouble a few weeks ago with softies and lack of laying caused by excessive treats from me.


They had become too s"Ooops, word censored!"by for their pellets, but I withdrew all treats and they got pellets or porridge made from pellets, hot water and bokashi bran.


Laying is back to normal now, and thay are not so fussy anymore about their pellets either :whistle:

deffo agree with the tough love,theywon't starve themselves. Mine did this when I go some of the omlet pellets once- they were having none of it. I left them in the run for 2 days with nothing but and they were fine, went on to eat te sack fine!

Grr at your neighbours! I bet the chooks felt yukky, like if we ate chips for a week! :shock:
