    Quote:We were feeding solely Nutrena, but they recently made it darn near impossible for the local feed stores to get it in. (requiring massive tonage to be order at one time)

    The stable sweet feed is most likely a horse feed wouldn't use it.

    Their scratch feed is comparable to most others, just with their name on it.

    Not sure I know what the grain feed is.


    We fed, Nutrena All Flock, game bird, scratch, and layer

    Switching over the next month to Mazuri waterfowl feed

    I feed Nutrena All Flock, exclusively (as a commercial feed). Plus crushed oyster shell on the side, available free choice.

    I do give salad greens, peas, other chopped kitchen produce scraps, etc. as treats. I'll frequently hang a head of green cabbage from a shepherd's crook as a game of Tether Cabbage for the entire flock. The ducks and geese dominate the game.

    I use nutrena scratch, all flock, layer, and gamebird. It's the only type the feed stores around me carry. I did try layena when I drove to a farther feed store to pick up some bantams, but my chickens didn't seem to like it so I've stuck with nutrena.
