my bantams don't like the pellet feed we are giving all my chickens. we put a little corn in with it and they only like the corn. What tricks do you all try? I am wondering if we would buy the more powdered form and add wter to it to make a mash if they would eat better? they love to be free ranged during the day when it is their turn- i don't let all my chickens out in the yard (they all have pens attached to their coops that they still have fresh growing grass) because when they are all out they think it is fun to go up and poop all over my deck! back to the bantams, they are healthy- nobody is looking weak or starved, but they just waste their pellet food. all the over chickens eat it without any problem, so there has been nothing wrong with the feed we have been purchasing from the Tractor Supply store.
