    Hi. I just bought a bag of Omega Egg Maker Supplement and opened it. There's a gray-ish film on the top... looks kind of like mold. The crumbles are stuck together... not loose. Can this stuff go bad? I'm afraid to feed it to my girls! I use it because they are so spoiled it's about the only way to get them to eat their feed.

    I'd take it back. Sounds like it got damp somehow and has gone bad.

    I think I will. It's not worth killing my chickens if it's mold. Thanks!

    It sounds like it has gotten damp and it has mold. Not good, take it back. The feed should not stick together or have a moldy smell. They can get fungal diseases from some spoiled feeds.
