    Anybody out there using Countryside Naturals Soy Free Organic Feed? Do your chickens really like it? I find I have a huge amount of waste with it. My girls pick through for what they like and everything else winds up on the floor. I think i'm going to switch back to Blue Seal Organic Life Pellets because I am worried that they are not getting the nutrients they need. I tried a hanging feeder to address the food flying issue but due to the physical makeup of the feed it does not flow well... Anyone experience anything like this? Solutions?
    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    I went through 2 bags of it and my girls loved it, but it was way too expensive to have shipped to California, unfortunately. I would mix the leftover powder with a little bit of yogurt or water to make a mash. The girls ate it up!

    I set my feeder inside a plastic plant saucer that catches nearly all of the feed billed out of the feeder.
