Just wondering........has anyone used this yet? A new feed that helps your chickens through the molt and prevents mites, all at the same time! Too good to be true???????

We're on day three of it. We have a bird stuck mid molt and are trying this to see if it helps her. I'll update with any news.

Each day i try to provide hens laying & in molt with(small amounts) sunflower hearts , shelled peanuts , safflower seeds , flax seeds and cheap groundbeef , boiled or fresh beef liver and beef heart .
On all of these use just a small amount of each and mix ... only give the hens a small amount in hand given to each one or thrown where all can get (if all - make sure to put out enough partial handfuls to include all hens in different directions).
I throw them little chunks of ground beef and/or liver and beef hearts same way(if boiled it's easier to feed but they say it takes away from the value /// i really don't know and do it both ways at times)

Our TSC doesn't carry it either. We found it at a store called Farm & Fleet. You might want to check and see what your area farm stores have.

Just got my 4 bags from Agway today. Smells just like Agway Hearty Hen! Don't know if they like it yet. Got 4 bags to go 6 weeks or so & we'll see how it goes.
