Whats the difference between this feed and Scratch and Peck Feeds Naturally Free Organic Grower Chicken & Duck Feed, 25-lb bag? Which is better for baby chickens?
Answer by ChewyMar 30, 2018
The Starter Feed is recommended for baby chicks. The Grower Feed intended to encourage growth in both ducks and chickens aged 2 to 5 months.

IS this feed in crumbles or pellets or is it just the seeds? I have Serama banties and they have to have small bites.
Answer by ChewyFeb 13, 2019
Please click on the attached photo for a visual reference of the feed.

Is this for ducks also?
Answer by ChewyApr 02, 2020
This feed is formulated for Chickens and Ducks.

Do I also need to supply chick grit with this feed or is it included?
Answer by ChewyMar 06, 2021
This is formulated with organic, raw whole grains like wheat and barley, plus nutrient-rich meals like sesame, flax and kelp, it’s a complete and balanced feed for starting poultry chicks and ducklings.

Great ingredients, too much dust

I like the ingredients of Scratch and Peck Organic Chick Starter Grower Feed, it's probably the best retail chicken feed you can find. What I don't like about it is how much dust is in each bag, as well as sticks and other debris. The seeds and their casings get over grinded, so about half the bag is dust, so this is not a good feed to give to your chicks dry, but it makes a good wet mash, which the chicks devour, causing almost no waste of food. So I recommend this food to feed as a wet mash, not as dry feed.

Ducklings did not eat

My ducklings did not like this food, and weren’t eating much. Switched to another food and they are now eating enough

Chick Starter

I wanted to address the negative reviews about the product being a very fine grind as opposed to larger pieces. The smaller grind is safer for your chicks, until they reach an age where they can fully process seeds, I would say around 3 weeks or older. I have had one chick die and currently one that may be going through a VERY expensive surgery from an obstruction caused by large sized grain being in the chick starter and subsequently causing an obstruction. In my case it was peas and it was from another brand of chick starter, which did not screen out the larger pieces. If a piece of large seed such as a pea gets stuck, your chick will not be able to break it down, especially in the first few weeks of life. If Scratch and Peck is making the seed a finer grind, there is good reason for it! I hope they continue to do so, and screen out large pieces, as this product seems far superior to more fully processed ones. My chicks and chickens love it. The only reason I had tried another was the cost. If you are concerned about obstructions in your baby chicks, organic crumble is a good choice for the first two wks.

Little ones LOVE it!

My hatchlings gobbled it right up! (Other ‘crumbles’ seemed hard for them to swallow). Would definitely order it again!

good feed but overprocessed

My chickens love this feed, which I've just started to buy over the past month in spite of its cost. They consume it eagerly and I want a food for them that does NOT contain corn. The last bag that I got (a 40 lb bag) was over-milled or over-processed and it was ground too fine. The crumble was too "dusty". The oats and barley were not visible. I assume they were ground into tiny bits. My birds like to see a seed. I have notified the manufacturer about this and am awaiting their response.

Worth Every Penny

My chicks love this stuff!! I started them out on another brand from the farm store and it doesn’t even compare. This stuff has actual food in it, with real ingredients. My chicks run to me when they see the scoop! Will continue buying this.

Great stuff

Our baby chicks and ducklings love this food! It's definitely more expensive than what's available at our local feed supply, but the first two ingredients in the other stuff are soy and corn, so you get what you pay for. I had to grind up the feed in the blender at first because some of the pieces were a little too big for the chicks (we got them when they were 2 days old), but it wasn't too much trouble. They're three weeks old now and eating it up no problem.

"Picture" of the feed is not accurate

I bought this based on the photo of the feed and what i got was basically dust with a few small seeds in them. I'm attaching a photo. Everything that's not definable by looking at it? Dust.
