Hi there ours eggs are near to hatching but the parents wont eat egg food we have been putting it in the avairy since the first egg was laid they have fresh food every day things like apple pears peas sweetcorn carrots salad foods and other fruit and veg which we scatter over the avairy we also mix the seed foods our self plus just normal seed that is bought already prepepard
Do they need to eat the egg food or is it just for when the chicks hatch what if they dont eat it when they have hatchlings
will the chicks be ok if they dont eat it
I feed eggfood every day. Beside proteines it provides essential vitamins and minerals. In my opinion they need it every day. To what extent they take it up depends on individual taste but also on the brand name. From my experience it seems that 'White mills' eggfood has the best flavour.
