So anyone who feeds the whole seed style feed... a couple of questions for the chicken experts: 1- Do you wonder about getting the proper nutrition with seed style feed, since the vitamins are a dust of sorts mixed in and can be picked around.... and 2- Those that feed seed style feed- do your birds make a huge mess?! My birds make a huge mess with it picking through to get to the seeds they like, so I worry they don't get the vitamin powder part and the mess and waste is horrid.... I am contemplating going back to pellet, because even though the seed style is cheaper and local, it is hugely wasted.. (it is even soy free and non-GMO, which is awesome, dang chickens!) I was in the pen yesterday and there is always loose seed on the ground.... I felt around, the ground was all squishy and pad-like... I dig into it, and I kid you not, I pulled up an inch+ thick chunk solid of seed that had been mashed down and wetted from the birds' feet. In a space about 2ft x 2ft... that is a lot of wasted feed! The cats enjoy eating those chunks.. but it is still a waste and we are trying to discourage the cats eating the chicken feed (isn't that problem usually in the reverse?!!) Thanks for any thoughts, as I like I said, I am contemplating switching back, and just wanna hear others' feedback before I make my final decision.
