    My feed store was out of crumbles so I had to buy pellets and my hens hate them. Any suggestions?

    They will eat them. Once they do you will see there is almost no waste with pellets. They cost more but I use less so in the end they are less than crumbles. I won't go back to crumbles.

    They might not hate them. Pellets are much more efficient and they just might be at the feeder less because they don't have to peck at dust. If it is poultry feed, then it should be good to go.

    I only use pellets. There is allmost no waste and trust me, when they are hungry they will eat them! You could try crushing them yourself, but what a pain!

    I agree, if the birds get hungry enough they will eat the pellets.
