    I'm thinking of trying Rouge organic instead of my usual Cascade. Anyone have experience to compare the two?

    Did either of you try the Rogue feed? I like the idea of it being in pellet form vs mash.

    No, I did not try it. I had to give up on the Cascade. I got two bags in rwo that were really dusty and the hens would not eat the dust. I have switched to whatever organic crumbles I can find local.

    Yeah, my concern about the Cascade is that I can only get mash. The idea of having to mix it with water each day is a pain.

    We have been feeding the soy free rouge pellets for months now, before that we were feeding a organic layer mash. We were having a lot of waste with the mash. The girls were not fond of the pellets at first. We had to stop all treats in order for them to eat it. Now they are fine with it. Very little waste with the pellets.
