Hi guys, my chickens have now officially outgrown their starter feed- I still have like 10 lbs left and i'm wondering if I can just mix it in with their new provisions until I'm out of it. Otherwise I guess I will keep it for nex years chicks if it will stay good that long. any idea on if they can continue eating it or if I can store it till next spring? Also, I have some parakeet pellets that are fresh but the keet passed away. They are a good brand, Kaytee, and I was wondering if I can sprinkle them in with their scratch just for some colorful variety. I'm assuming that it's not nurtrtionally balanced for them but if i just use it as a treat will it hurt my laying hens? Thanks guys!
