    I just opened a 50lb bag of PMI Nutrition's scratch grains and realized there is no way I can use it all before it goes bad. If anyone wants 10-15lbs let me know. I'm in Duvall WA or you can pickup at my work in Bellevue WA.

    How many chickens do you have? Even a small flock of 3 - 4 will eat that much in a month.

    I have seven birds. The label on the scratch says it is should comprise less than 10% of the diet. At that rate it would take about 10 months. I'd rather give the scratch away while it's fresh than risk it going bad. Plus my girls prefer blackberries and tomatoes to scratch.

    I promise it won't go bad. Even if you keep it 2 or 3 months. Chickens eat alot.
