Put it on a couple of plates and let them at it (outside of course). They love it. I do have just a small flock so I don't know how handy that would be for someone who has a lot of chickens. I also have a Rooster so I chose that because of calcium concerns. So far no problems.
The best way (hopefully) to find out about a discontinuation is to contact Purina and see if they reply.
If you are occasionally wetting their feed, you might consider giving it a couple more days to ferment: give them the probiotic advantage. You'll be amazed at how much longer the feed lasts.
I don't care what form my feed is in: pellet crumble, or even mash. I buy what ever form is cheapest at the time, because it will be fermented. A bag of feed lasts a lot longer (no waste, and the nutrients in fermented are more bio-available), and my flock is always in top form.
