    GREAT FEED!

    By Elle on Mar 31, 2021

    Only the best for my girls! Give them time to adjust to the transition, I mixed mine half and half with their whole grain S&P feed and they didn't want to touch it at first but after a few weeks they were picking out the pellets to eat and leaving the whole grains. This is also great for ducks because they like to wash their food down with water and with the whole grain S&P, a lot of the food and vitamin/mineral powder would wash out into the water and be wasted. No waste no mess with the pellet. My girls have all gained weight, eat more and are in better condition on this pellet.

    Layer can feed but...

    By Bruno on Mar 26, 2021

    This stuff sounds cool but in reality it was too big and dry for my chickens to eat. It's just too foreign and unnatural for them to find it appealing. My work around for this is adding black sunflower seeds and water to soften them up. The pellets absorb the water quickly and will soon become softer and palatable. I also ferment grains (scratch feed) and add this to the mix just before feeding time. The liquid from the ferment gets absorbed into these pellets and really enhances the palatability. If your feeding this to your flock your birds are indeed shamelessly spoiled.

    Worth the Adjustment Period

    By OlsonFamilyFlock on Feb 22, 2021

    I used Scratch and Peck's whole grain feed for years, and was excited to try this new pelleted feed. As another user mentioned, my flock was slow to adjust to the new format, but they eventually did and WOW what an amazing outcome. Don't give up - it took my flock two months, and I'm so glad I kept on trying. I previously had a few picky eaters who didn't eat all the whole grain components, and the new pellets have totally resolved that issue. Gone are the days of feather picking, or the occasional soft egg shell - my ladies are all fully feathered and super healthy, and I get the best tasting and hardest shelled eggs of my life. Even my husband commented about the fact that he had to really I used Scratch and Peck's whole grain feed for years, and was excited to try this new pelleted feed.

Even my husband commented about the fact that he had to really "whack" the eggs to get the shells to crack. It's the perfect "one and done" solution for my busy life, and as much as I loved the whole grain, I will probably be a grub pellet feeder for life now. Another awesome benefit of this feed is that now my flock gets super excited to get scratch as a treat, so I have an additional training tool for socializing them. The pellets themselves are high quality, and despite the dampness in my barn, the pellets have yet to crumble or dissolve at all. And, they seem to be getting their nutritional needs met so well that they are eating less than before so it makes this bag go a long long way. Anyhow, I love supporting an American company, and love that they buy their grains from American family farms. If you're looking for the very best, I highly recommend this product. … more

    I really wanted this to work...

    By paulg on Feb 12, 2021

    I've used other Scratch & Peck products for my five backyard hens, including their traditional organic feed pellets, and the ladies have always enjoyed them. When I learned about this new line of pellets made with grub protein, I was really attracted to the fact that its production results in less food waste. It also made sense that grub protein would be a perfectly acceptable ingredient to my hens, given how much they love the grubs and other bugs they find in the garden. Since our experience with Scratch & Peck products had always been positive, I felt comfortable taking the chance and buying a bag.

Since our experience with Scratch & Peck products had always been positive, I felt comfortable taking the chance and buying a bag. After taking a few days to transition from their previous pellets, when the ladies finally had this as their primary food ration they didn't seem very impressed. They don't appear to find these pellets appetizing and have dramatically reduced the amount of feed they're eating. Worse, whenever I toss them their morning scoop of scratch, they are now more combative with each other over who gets more snacks. I really wanted this new feed to work for my little flock, but it seems to be a dud. My only regret is that I'll have to buy feed sooner than I'd anticipated and that I'll be left with a whole lot of feed that my ladies don't care for. … more
