    I accidentally left a full quart container of hen scratch in the pen.....came back an hour later.....of course it is all gone. I have 14 hens at 8mo olds and 5 hens at 4 year old.

    I usually give them scratch as a treat and am not sure if I have done harm? Please advise.

    Thank you for your expereince and your wisdom.

    It is fine. The problem of too much treats is a long term diet thing. One day filling up on candy won't hurt you, but do that for a year and then you'll have a problem. THey are just waiting for you to forget it again now!
