    Our guineas always clean up around the calf feeders, in which we feed creep feed. I would assume chickens would do the same [​IMG]

    I'll enlighten y'all 'creep feed' is a pelleted feed used for calves and its put out in a feeder that the cows cant get into to eat. Called a creep feeder.
    The feed is the same size pellet as the layer feed. I feed it to my horses .
