    At the feed store I work in alot of customers feed 14% small creep to their chickens and 3 way feed, has anyone on here tried this? Also has anyone tried super scratch? I looks like good stuff.

  4. The protein % is to low in both for a complete feed. The fact that the scratch contains soybean oil is troubling. While soybeans are a good source of protein, the whole bean is slightly toxic to most life forms. Therefor the soy in most chicken feed has been processed, roasted, ground, pressed, (or the oil has been expelled in some other way) This makes it palatable to chickens. The same thing is likely true concerning the peas. However a good pig feed or hog chow can be the cats' meeow of chicken feeds.
