    my pullets appear to be doing well, but I would like to switch them to organic feed. any suggestions? They are doing a great job foraging in my back yard, debugging and weeding it. I want to find a healthy balance with organic egg laying mash.

    See what your feed store carries is my suggestion. I go to two or three different feed stores around here (actually four) plus I do mail order sometimes if it is a better deal (azurestandard).

    Smell them...some smell really good and fresh and others not so much. If you can get the pellets there is less waste than with crumbles. Some hens have to adjust to pellets and may balk but they will eat them when they get hungry.
