    I've had to feed mine cracked corn a couple times, when we run out. It's fine for chickens, but my picky chickens didn't really eat much of it.

    If I can't get to my favorite feed store (which is never out of what I need!) and have to buy feed from a more local store, I will get "meat bird" feed, suitable for turkeys.

    If it's only a day away from the weekend when I CAN get to my favorite feed store, I will just give them some more people food, some cat kibble, and more BOSS.
