Tips for Light Breeds
By Miller Hatcheries
When mixing light and heavy breeds, it is almost a must that the light breeds [Leghorns] be beak trimmed as the heavy breeds are slower feathering and this causes the light breeds to pick on them.
Contrary to popular belief, feather picking is not caused by a lack of any particular type of mineral within their diet; it is purely an environmental problems - such as too much light, too much heat - too crowded or too much room.
It is very important that your birds feel comfortable.
