    expensive but good

    By Debby on Jun 16, 2020

    it’s really good quality feed, imo. My hens love it and I notice it runs out more slow than the pellets due to them needing to eat less for same nutrition/fullness. I love the fact that I can ferment it, too, as a treat. They really love this feed and don’t “pick” through it very much at all like they it’s really good quality feed, imo.

It’s spendy, though, and a high-quality pellet would probably be just as good as far as bird health and egg quality, but I will keep using this because I like it so much, even though it’s expensive. … more

    This feed is sub par

    By Tina on Mar 2, 2020

    I have been purchasing this feed for about a year or so and the last couple of times the bag is mostly dust and full of sticks. I don't know if the feed is old or not stored properly, but the quality has gone down hill. My hens won't eat it now. For the price I expect better.

    Added to my pellets

    By on

    I bought this to add to my organic pellets. It gives them a variety. The chickens and ducks love it! I am also pleased that it is made right here in America and with real food. It smells like we could eat it.

    Keeps hens healthy!

    By on

    After trying a few other brands over the last couple of years, I still believe this feed keeps my hens the healthiest and laying lots of eggs with strong shells. In order to get the benefit of all the good things Scratch and Peck Feeds adds to this feed, I soak (ferment) my feed overnight in a glass jar (it's super easy). I just dump the fermented feed into an old pan in the morning and put it in the run. All of that 'dust' in the feed that people complain about is actually good for your chickens! Not to mention, wasting it by letting them eat around it or throwing it away makes it more expensive to feed them. Scratch and Peck Feeds is the best!

    Great feed

    By on

    I am very much into living an organic lifestyle including my animals. I’ve been using this feed for years. Top quality, nutritionally balanced for chickens and ducks. I highly recommend this Company whatever your feed needs are.

    Loved by chickens

    I'm not an expert my any means but the four chickens I have like it and produce great eggs regularly. Can't ask for anything more!

    Whole grains and nutrition

    By on

    I have been using this feed for years. I ran out once and bought something else produced locally, but my girls will not eat anything with pellets. It just lies on the ground for the rats, which is gross! I soak some of it and give them that semi-fermented feed in a plate, but have this dry in a hopper feeder. They love it and so does my peahen. I have some hens that are about 8 years old and still laying!!

    Chickens' Favorite Food

    By on

    This food is a favorite among our birds. We've tried some Layena pellets and other organic types and have come back to this brand. The quality is great. It's organic and soy free. The birds think it's gourmet and come running when the grain scoop is shaken. And the convenience of having it show up at my doorstep is incredibly helpful.

    Best Chicken Quality Feed

    By on

    This is real food and worth the price. We have tried lots of different foods, including Purina, and they absolutely devour this food. Note: the dust is vitamins and minerals, per my local feed store which keeps this popular brand in stock at all times. I supplement with fresh greens and other produce and my chickens are doing well.

    Great Product!

    By on

    At first I didn’t think our chickens liked eating this but then I realized that they actually are eating but only need to eat 1/2 as much as their previous feed that was mostly corn. We used to have problems with weak shells and that is no longer an issue. They seem to be a lot calmer too. Overall very pleased with this product & would definitely recommend!
