    I have never used scratch and I have had chickens for over two yrs. Never really thought about it until someone gave me two bags of it. I have 20 adult ckns and 12 4 wk old chicks. At what age can they have it ? It should be just a treat right?
    Thanks. I feel stupied asking such a silly question![​IMG]

    It's fine as a treat, just make sure they are getting grit when you start giving it to them.
