Can this be fed to the rooster or do I have to feed separately?
Answer by ChewyApr 17, 2018
If you have roosters in your flock, they won't touch the calcium, nor will non-laying hens, which is why it should always be fed free-choice not mixed into the feed so each bird can eat as little or as much as they want. Roosters can eat layer feed once they reach 18 weeks old despite the higher calcium levels, as long as you're not mixing in the additional calcium into the feed.

Is this non gmo?
Answer by ChewyDec 08, 2018
This is a USDA-certified organic recipe specially formulated for layer hens.The use of genetic engineering, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs), is prohibited in organic products.

can this be a food for ducks ?
Answer by ChewyApr 18, 2018

Sad Chickens

If I could go back, I wouldn’t have purchased this. It’s funny because chickens can’t taste and my birds are struggling with eating it let alone going through the bags. Unfortunately for me, I dumped both bags into our feed bin so unless I toss it to the rats, (but I don’t want my money wasted further), so I’ll offer it to my chickens until we are done. I am already working on finding another food.

no complaints

Been feeding this to my Girlz (18 hens) for about 4-5 years, seemingly, no complaints from them... people complained about generic white bags in the reviews-- my order seems to have always come in the green bag- and my neighbor up-cycles them and makes reusable shopping bags out of them for the food pantry; I had one bag of feed that was inadvertently left in our garage for a couple of weeks - and upon opening it, it was rancid. clumpy and moldy. but that may have been a result of my storage; though it was dry- I cut my losses, because I can't say if it arrived that way.- Chewy will replace any moldy bags- if you speak to them, I am sure. . I try to buy locally, this food is less expensive than what is available at the local feed store so I split my purchases between them...

skip if you have brown laying eggs

I switched to this feed because it was organic and a good price. Came in an unmarked white bag..hm ok..the omega 3s now have my brown eggs smelling fishy. So skip if you don’t want fishy smelling brown eggs (I looked it up post smelly eggs, common thing for brown egg chickens and omega 3) back to our old feed we go.

Don’t buy this feed

Comes in a generic white bag. Smells like mildew. Didn’t even feed it to my chickens. I have bought this feed from a local store and it was fine. This is not the same.

Not what is pictured

I purchased this product and when it came in I got a solid white bag with no writing on it. Nothing on the bag. It doesnt show the organic seal. I will not be buying the product anymore. This is not what is pictured.

I want the best Eggs I can get!

Using organic feed with NO DE in it mean a lot to me and my family. I want our chickens to be healthy inside and out and lay the best possible eggs for us to eat. This feed seems to be the ticket. My girls eat the pellets just fine.

It sounds good but my chickens don't like it

This is the first layer pellets I have had my pullets on when they reached laying age 2 months ago. They just really don't like it. I will supplement with scratch later in the day and they love that. I had them on grower pellets (different brand) which they really enjoyed. I'm keeping them on the Kalmbach pellets because I want to finish the bag and the organic nutrition sounds good. I will try something different for their next bag of layer pellets.

Chickens won't eat it

I wanted so much for this feed to work. It seemed reasonably priced for an Organic fed and I was hopeful it would work, even after reading negative reviews. Unfortunately, my hens will not eat it! They scattered it all over their run, looking for something else, leaving behind a huge mess for me to clean up. I tried for over a week, and they simply refused to eat it.

Happy hens

Pellets are a goid size, and very little dust! Chickens eat them, and their egg shells are stronger.
