Dusty and buggy
As others have mentioned, the scratch grains are very dusty. It leaves a white film on everything. I also had an issue with bugs but it was stored away from the house and not a huge deal breaker. The hens seemed to like it fine but don’t love it. I’ve made them my own mix of grains and they like that much more. For the price, I was expecting a more quality product.
Way too many peas
The first time I purchased this product I thought it was a pretty good deal. Then the second time it seemed like there was more peas and the third time purchase will be my last time. My chickens won't eat the peas not even the wild birds will eat them and I have a load of peas all over my chicken yard. I will not buy this product again.
Great Supplemental feed
I raised my baby chicks on this brand, it always fresh, no power. Tried out the scratch and mixed it in with my normal feed. Good stuff.
I'll never buy a Hen Up product again. These scratch grains were at least 1/3 ground up dust. My hens wouldn't touch the round peas in there so this was such a waste. Probably more beneficial if I had just dumped it directly into the compost.
Bugs and dust
Opened the bag to find mold and pantry moths flying out, also little flying black bugs.... I know it's organic haha but now the creatures are in my house... Yuck!
My girls LOVE this stuff!
My girls are addicted to this stuff - so much so, that within 20 mins of being let out to forage, they will start to pester me for scratch (I give it to them when it's time to put back in the run). I know another reviewer said 1/3 of the bag was peas but that does not seem to be the case in my bags - there aren't that many peas and my girls love those too anyway.
Looks Like Really Old Grains
My chickens hate this. It looks old, smells older - covered in what looks like white dust. Really not a good product and certainly not worth the money.
A treat that doesn't hurt my complete feed!
My chickens are more than just egg layers, they are part of my family. Just like I enjoy treating my cats and dogs, I do like to treat my feather flock! However, in doing research on good options, I was having a hard time finding a supplement that wouldn't negatively impact the overall complete feed plan I had. On top of that, I wanted to ensure the feed was non-GMO, organic, and soy-free so that not only it was healthy for my flock, ut that the eggs were even healthier for me and my family. Enter Scratch Grains! I treat my ladies every day with a quarter cup of scratch grains in their run (I normally throw most of it on the ground to encourage scratching, but i also let them eat it from hand). It serves its purpose very well and keeps my flock healthy, happy, and complete. I cannot reccomend this product with more excitment. We will be a HenUp Flock! For context: I live in a city and have 10 layers (city math won't allow me to do have more than 10 hens). Ever since switching them over to Hen Up, the eggshells have been even stronger (I didn't think that was possible ?!?) and my family members with soy sensitivity were able to eat the eggs my hens produced without any issue. I grew up on a farm prior to moving into the city and have raised chickens for most of childhood and now a good portion of my adult life.
Bag had a hole in it
The bag had a rather large hole in it and scratch was coming out...
Too much filler which my chickens won't eat.
Virtually 1/3 of the volume is made up of chick peas (or something large and round) which my chickens don't eat. It is accumulating on the ground and not even the squirrels, which usually do a good job of cleanup, will touch it. Also, it arrived days later than promised.
