    they can have anything organic. If your chickens have been feed store feed(non organic) then you will need to get new birds if you want organic. Organic birds can never be feed anything non organic.

    This is true. Must be fed 100% organic virtually from hatch. The "form" or "shape" of the feed is irrelevant. Mash, pellet, crumble, etc. The issue is the organic content of the feed.
