If your birds like the crumble and don't waste a ton of it there is no reason to change. I have a mixed bantam/standard flock and my birds hated pellets with a passion, the bantams especially. I had more wasted feed with pellets because they shoveled it out looking for crumbles and never picked it up. Went back to crumbles, problem solved. I have very, very little waste. My feeder sits on a square piece of wood and I regularly see them picking up any crumbles that fall out. Otherwise they just stand there and wolf it down. And they are happy! No more frustrated, complaining hens in my coop! So crumbles it is for us.
