I went to buy feed today at mt feed store, I have talked to this guy who loads the feed a few times. We were talking about our chickens and and chicks and I asked him what do you feed your chicks? He said he starts them on chick starter for a month and then he just gives them scratch till the point of lay. Well I am no chicken food expert so, I say I thought you are not supposed to feed sctatch in the summer WE LIVE IN IDAHO WERE IT IS 95-105 July-Aug. It makes them to hot it is for winter months to warm them up. He says I have never heard of such a thing and looks at me like I am an Idiot! Then he loads my feed and goes to the other guy, and I am sure telling him what I said and they both were laughing as I drove away!! This is the only feed store in my town, now everytime he loads my feed he will think I am Stupied. When he is really the stupied one.
