    Looks completely different from the crumble I get. At least you can tell what some of the ingrediants are

    What do your chicks think?

    Looks to me like a high quality starter. The extruded soy will add a lot of protein and energy to the feed. The only drawback might be palatability. Soy sometimes is not very well accepted because of it's taste.

    Doesn't appear to be equally ground properly. Baby chicks need moer finely ground starter. After a couple of weeks, they will be more open to larger grains. Just looks like a lesser quality and unprofessionaly designed.

    What about the ingredients?

    I guess its the camera.
    The big peaces aren't really any bigger than crumbles that I normally feed and they eat.
    Most of it is like mash.

    You all know nothing about feed manufacturing to make these statements.
