    Hi!

    How does it smell? Does it catch in your throat?

    I just went and looked in my bag of flock raiser. The crumbles are a uniform tan color.

    Does your feed smell moldy?

    Does the bag feel damp?

    How are you storing your feed?

    Do the black specks go all the way through the feed?

    Have you called your feed store and told them? If they are a good store they will take it back and replace it.

    Well black specs aren't right in feed. It is something that shouldn't be there. I'd take it back or throw it out . Should be tan dry crumbles.
