    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.

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.

    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.

    I think my chickens are hesitant to change, but are gradually getting used to the new meal plan! I like the idea of organic and am pleased with it.

    I have fed our girls Scratch and Peck feeds since day 1. I ran out recently and had to supplement with feed from the local feed store until our order came. Our girls wouldn't touch the other feed. They were not happy with the couple of alternates I tried giving them. They were beyond excited when their Scratch and Peck came. All their products have been awesome and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a quality Organic Non- GMO feed. The company includes a card with the nutritional information and the "milled on" date and the "batch" number. We always know that the feed our girls is getting, is fresh and grown in the USA.

    I've been using the feed for years and I love it. My chickens LOVE it, even more, when I ferment it for them.

  • Good enough to eat!

    By on

    Most of my chickens love this feed! One of our girls has been plagued with very soft stools since day 1 but after a month of fermented S&P, she has made significant improvement. She was the first to lay and the only one to continue laying throughout the winter. It’s more expensive than their pellets we also feed, but lasts at least twice as long.

  • Chickens love it

    I was reluctant to purchase because of the price, but the chickens eat it a lot better than the feed I was giving them and there is not a lot of waste. They eat it and don't throw it around the run. Takes a little getting used to the smell as the fish meal adds an unusual smell to it.

    so happy to have found this product. Feels great to feed my girls whole grains instead of highly processed pellets or crumbles. They love it, there is very little waste and they are laying like champs.

  • The girls all love this food!

    I couldn’t even fill up the storage container without the girls breaking in to it. I will say they ate more the first 24 hours thinking it was about to disappear. Definitely keeping this on auto-ship.
