    I have a lot of powder in the feed bag, it also ends up piling up in the feeder so I have to dump the whole feeder out and reload. Can the chicks eat this (6 week olds) or is it too fine for them to eat?

    what type of feed is this. the powder is fine but it has to be the correct feed. but most likely they will not like it as much.

    It was really bad with the Start & Grow but also happening with the Flock Raiser (both Purina)

    I use the same feed and when i clean out the feeders i put any powdery leftovers in a pie pan and set it on a block. They go at it like it's a special treat. You can also mix it with some yogurt and they will really clean it up. Good Luck

    I feed the fine stuff at the bottom to my hens. They go after it like it's a treat.
