    It may be weevils. I have seen those in feed in the hot summer weather before from a certain national feed store chain that recently closed in my area. The weevils would not be harmful to your chickens, but make sure that your feed is fresh dated and that there is no mold or funny odors. You should be able to get a refund on it if your return it.
