    Pic is really blurry but it looks moldy to me. Is it a newly opened bag? I would take it back to the store.

    You should be able to smell. It'll have a sour smell to it.

    Moldy feed can kill chickens. How long have you had that bag? has it been stored in a dry place? If you just got it, take it back.

    The bag was already open and because of the rains a few days ago I cant return it .
    But hey that's life you save money so you can buy 2months of feed back to back because the first month of feed went bad
