    I just started using flock raiser now that I have babies and adults. I just bought my second bag and its a lot darker in color plus it's like powder not crumble. Could it be that I just got end of batch? Anyone get any like this before???

    Made on September 24 2014.I'd take it back.Unless they have changed the formula that doesn't look right

    As I grabbed the bottom of the bag to find date it felt as is it's more powder than anything. So I'm assuming whole bag is like this. I hope they didn't change the formula, I can't imagine ducks wanting to grab mouthfuls of powder. I'll prob just return/exchange it to be safe. Gonna open the next bag before I pay for it too

    I do not see any bugs. I did not dump the bag to fully inspect it. It's not a fine powder there is some smaller crumbles mixed in very little tho. I guess you could say it's like sand I guess would be a better word than powder
