Questions & Answers

9 Customer Questions

Does this feed contain exclusively non-GMO ingredients?
Answer by ChewyDec 20, 2019
This feed is all natural and is not non-GMO.

How big are the pellets? Can bantams handle them?
Answer by ChewyDec 12, 2019
This feed is a standard 10/64 pellet size. It is suitable for bantam chickens.

Is this feed suitable for fermenting?
Answer by ChewyJun 21, 2022
The manufacturer does not recommend fermenting their poultry feeds. There is a possibility that it could damage the pre/probiotics and vitamins in the feed. The biggest concern, however, would be the possibility for producing mold from the excess moisture. Molds are particularly dangerous because they can produce invisible mycotoxins. Mycotoxins can be produced even before visible mold is present, which means they have the potential to be very dangerous to poultry.

Our hens have always eaten a 'meal' type feed, but recently all the food ends up on the floor and in the nesting boxes of the coop as they kick it around. Will the pellets help?
Answer by ChewyNov 18, 2021
Usually, in this situation pellets will be beneficial. One of the benefits of a pellet is that any they drop in the bedding are easily found and picked up by the birds. Pellets also help keep the ingredients from separating and settling as the mix sits in a bag or a feeder.

This is great stuff!

I've trusted my girls to Kalmbach Feeds for a long time now, and it's expensive. Adding these pellets (and they're big!) to my regular feed will stretch my budget nicely. ^The girls love them, and they're easy to use. GREAT PRODUCT!

Like magic

The 2nd day I switched to this feed, all chickens laid, and all bigger. I like it no dust, no crumbs. If only it can be more affordable....

No issues with food

Bought this for our chickens and they ate it no issues. They are continuing to lay and the shells are strong.

Quality food for my girls

My girls love this food. I usually mix Henhouse Reserve into the pellets. I've gotten compliments on their eggs. People tell me they are the best eggs they ever ate! My hens look great. They haven't had any vent gleet or any other health problems since I started feeding Kalmbach. The eggshells are very hard, and the yolks are bright orange. The reason I looked for new feed is because the pellets in the old feed were dusty and sometimes pulverized. I never have that with Kalmbach. I recommend it !

This smells like straight soy sauce

The smell of soy is overwhelming and just so strong! I am sure this attracts more critters too. I ordered a couple of these bags because they are slightly cheaper than my normal bags at Tractor Supply. I only buy organic and these are adversited as natural, but unfortunately it is not organic. The bags were a waste of money.
