    The crumbles are messy when some of the chickens like to throw it out. I use crumbles just for the reason I have a chicken with a crooked beak. Otherwise I think pellets would be less of a mess.

    I switched to pellets a while back - so far, less mess and its lasting longer! I think crumbles are good for young pullets and growing chicks but all of mine are older now.

    Scratch that - I have BCM eggs for a broody due here tomorrow! [​IMG]

    your chickens will waste about 50% more with crumbles. Stick to pellets...
