    "My hens only eat Scratch and Peck!"
    Pros - Whole grain mash, non-GMO certified, organic, soy-free, corn-free option available
    Cons - None
    When you first open a bag of Scratch and Peck, the sweet smell is the first thing you notice. It's almost enough to make me want to taste it. I only feed my hens Scratch and Peck. All of my adult birds came to me from other places at about 18 months old, in varying degrees of health. All had previously been on pellet food. I had no problems at all switching them to the mash. I was mixing it in warm water, since the fines in the feed are difficult for the hens to eat. But then I learned about fermenting, and they love it even more. They are all very healthy now, laying tons of eggs. Their poop has very little odor to it at all, which still amazes me.

    This spring I got a batch of chicks, and they have been eating the S&P chick starter. When they get big enough to be in the run with the hens, they will all get fermented grower feed.

    I happen to live in Bellingham, Washington, where Scratch and Peck started and is headquartered, so it's easy to find here. I pay around $28 for a 40 lb bag of layer feed. A little pricier than other feeds, but it is worth it to me. If you are looking for the best in organic, non-GMO, this is a great option, especially if you ferment!

    "Scratch and Peck Naturally Free layer feed"
    Pros - looks healthy! tons of good stuff in it
    this is a great feed for your ladies. No soy or corn, just good whole grains (barley, wheat, peas, triticale, etc). I like to mix in black sunflower seeds and millet to stretch it further. My girls devour this stuff. Once when the feed store was out, I gave them "Albers" which is a conventional feed and they looked at me like "I have to eat this crap?"

    It's a healthy food for them which is important to me because what goes into them goes into their eggs, which further enter my body. It's locally grown here in Washington by small farmers, and it's organic (although not certified). If you care about their health, give them this.

    It even has oyster shells and grit mixed in, but I still offer free choice.

    I just switched over and after they ate it they rolled in it where it had been! LOL

    I have been using the S&P starter since the begining on my birds, and it has been great as well! I add a little sprinkle of starter grit to the feeder with the morning feed, just in case. They are doing fantastically on it, it also doesn't seem to create the same "farmy chicken" smell with the feces, an important factor in the suburbs! It is still poo of course, but isn't nearly as stinky as others chickens I've smelled. All in all, I think I will keep my flock on this feed at all stages! It is good to know that the layer feed does have some oyster shell and grit already in it.
