As you know, scratch feed is NOT a nutritionally balanced thing. If I am giving my little babies a nutritionally balance feed, why should I spend money on scratch, since about all they'll get out of it is some exercise when one tosses it into the coop, e.g. I can think of better ways--at least in the warm months--to have my little ones get exercise: and it costs no $$!
