I recently purchased my favorite scratch. I'm wanting to give it to the youngsters but I'm afraid it's too soon. The 20 week olds eat exactly the same diet as the adults. I have 7 little peeps that are 8 weeks old. This scratch, made by a company called Southern States contains whole corn, popped corn, wheat seeds (aka wheat berries),Milo (alpiste)grain and black sunflowers seeds. The floor of their house with mom hen and daddy roo is the ground with wire underground so there is sand accessible though I haven't seen them try to ingest it. I do throw starter feed on the earth in addition to their food bowls. They seem to love to dig for it. All of that said, is it too early for scratch? When would be avoid age to intro that into their diet? Thanks!
