    My mom picked up some Cleveland Feed for me and it seemed to go so much quicker then the Purina I had bought before. I am trying to decide if that is a good thing or a bad thing? Do you think they liked it? Or was it just not filling their nutritional needs so they needed to eat more?

    ChickensAreSweet Heavenly Grains for Hens

    When the feed is popular I think it means they just like it. When I overfeed grains and they leave them, they just pick out the crumbles and leave many oats, etc.

    Then when they are craving more grains, they tend to leave some crumbles and eat all the grains (i.e. winter).

    I would compare the protein content and smell the feeds yourself to see if the smell seems more palatable with the Cleveland one.
