    If you have molting birds that are still growing in feathers, avoid giving them scratch.
    If everyone is all feathered in, go ahead. Just don't go crazy with it. A little bit before bed as a bit of a calorie boost each night is fine. Remember, scratch is not feed. It should never be a primary source of nutrition.
