Quote:16% is good for adults or older adolescents. I have stopped feeding scratch all together. It has very little nutritional value and they will pick it out and fill up on it rather than eating their real food (crumbles). Scratch is the equivalent to candy, so I don't recommend it at all. I suppose if it's VERY high quality and I'm not talking corn, you could get away with feeding it a couple of times per week............a very little bit maybe as a treat to make you feel good, but it's not good for them.
