The local feed mill where I will be getting my chicken feed carries ADM feeds, and I'm wondering about their layer feeds. The Balancer is supposed to be fed half and half with quality scratch grains, and you also need to feed oyster shell. I think with the complete, you don't have to feed anything else. My question is, what are the benefits of feeding the balancer? It seems like maybe it would end up being more expensive, since you'd then have to buy your scratch grains, but maybe not. I haven't stopped into the mill to check prices. Do people feed the Balancer so they can sort of customize their birds' diet by then adding whatever scratch grains they prefer? I'm thinking there must be some sort of benefit to it, because obviously feeding the Complete would be easier!
