    Stressing about this... [​IMG]

    The crumble feed is mashed up pretty good like there start n grow would look like but it says on the bag for laying hens... [​IMG]

    I would temporarily myself. I've been known to send some pellets through the blender (yesterday) as our feed store is closed during the weekend.
