    So my ducks are rescued. Someone clearly hand raised them and when they got too big, put them in the park near a manmade pond. When I finally brought them home, they were underweight and tired, but relatively healthy. But they won't eat scratch or pellets - they prefer dog food, which I assume they were raised on. That's fine, but a little high in protein for them. I am trying this to see if this will make a difference. They seem to at least eat some of it. Definitely more than any scratch I put down. Was very pleased with the "real" food - whole grains instead of processed. Since my girls are great at scrounging around the yard for bugs and such, I think they will eat more and more of this So my ducks are rescued.

  • My chickens hate this

    By on

    I fed my chickens this 3 days ago and they still haven't touched it!! Sorry but from my experience most chickens don't like oats and the majority of this is oats, will not buy again. I have been raising chickens for 10 yrs now, they are free range and maybe a little picky but they did not like this

  • Great product

    By on

    Scratch and Peck Feed is expensive compared to other organic brands, but this isn't an apples to apples comparison. You can see and smell the difference with this blend and our pullets love it! We have had many comments on the health of our birds; beautiful glossy feathers, bright eyes, and even their first eggs were perfect in every way.

  • My Chickens Love It!

    While my chickens love this product, my wallet does not. So I buy a bag and mix it with my other organic crumbles at a 1:2 ratio. I feel like they are getting some whole grains that they enjoy.

    We decided to go to this food after our chickens started laying soft eggs from their layer feed from TS. Huge difference immediately and they get very excited everytime it is filled up!

    Many reviewers will note that there is a lot of leftover or not enough pellets. You have to understand what type of feed you are getting for your chickens. This is meant to either be mixed with corn oil or fermented. You can't simply dump a scoop in the feed bin and hope they get all of the goods. The powder is the actual feed and in order to eat it, chickens have to have it compacted in someway. Otherwise, they are missing out on the nutrients of this feed and you are wasting your money. I ferment mine, super simple process. I have 2 kombucha jars, I put 2 cups of Rev Osmosis water (chlorine free) in the jar along with 4 cups of feed and allow it to set covered for 2 days, turning and shaking Many reviewers will note that there is a lot of leftover or not enough pellets.

I have 2 kombucha jars, I put 2 cups of Rev Osmosis water (chlorine free) in the jar along with 4 cups of feed and allow it to set covered for 2 days, turning and shaking the jars. Then you scoop out a sort of grainy paste. It smells hanky to us, but the ladies LOVE it and lay eggs more consistently when I do it this way. I have 5 super picky hens and feed about 1.5-2 cups of the fermented feed recipe above daily. Mine are also free range and eat a lot of "excess". If you want to ferment it correctly, then hit up the manufacturer's website and follow their instructions. My ladies don't like it so mushy and prefer it more dry is why I do mine this way. When I am ready to scoop it, it will smell like fresh bread dough, and the one jar/mix I use will feed them for 3-4 days in the summer and 2 days in the winter (feed more feed more often in the winter). … more

  • I thought it looked awesome, the chickens didn't care about it.

    By on

    Initially when I found this food for sale I was very excited, an organic feed that looks total AND tasty! My ladies were less than thrilled with it and preferred their pellets. Maybe it is personal preference?

    Great quality! My hens love this food. I could definitely tell a difference in their yolks after them eating this for a few days. I like the fact that it doesn't have corn or soy.
