Hi- not sure if this goes here or into the Feeding/Watering section but here goes:

I've had to start using chick starter mash instead of gamebird crumbles due to the price constantly climbing up.....

I'm discovering some mother hens are MESSY with the mash by "treasure hunting"- digging out the mash and picking off little bits in it for the chicks.. that makes the feed level go down fast and well, the mash blends into the ground too well.

Here's the hen making me ask this question- note the ground is already covered with mash all around the container and even some of the chicks have been powdered:
