In the most obvious way, the softened feed is more gentle on the stomach – or in a chicken’s case, their crop and gizzard.
– chicken feed – lay pellets – container to hold feed – water – spoon
Measure out your chicken feed, how much they can eat in a day you want to do at a time. They say 1/2 cup of lay pellets for regular-sized chickens.
You want to cover this with water, having about 3 inches above your feed.
