Does anyone else grind their chick starter? A local chicken lady (known for her excellent critter raising ability) told me I should grind the starter in my blender, her theory being the crumbles are so big the chicks throats are getting scratched thus they dont eat well and stop thriving. Ok ,DH thinks this is ridiculous, "feed co know what size they need".... my thought....well no more difficult than it is to grind it up a bit I'll do it(esp. if it gives them a better chance at survival).....and the crumbles are rather large, hard and scratchy. So for now I have been placing it in my blender and grating it to smaller size, the chicks don't seem to mind that I've done this. She says for standard chicks she does this for the first 2 wks for standards and 4 wks for bantams. Thank goodness I have 2 blenders, lol.
