I read so much about how everybody's chickens love scratch I couldn't wait to feed it to them. They will be 8 weeks old on Wednesday. So, I go to Tractor Supply Company and get the hugest bag of scratch I see. Bring it home and get a little bowl full and fling it towards the chicks. They ran screaming into the bushes! They thought I was trying to kill them. They wouldn't go near it. The only chicken that would touch it was my rooster. He is older than they are. 6 months old maybe. I found him, so I can only guess. He loved it. I guess they need to be a little older to appreciate it.
