    At what age is it best to introduce scratch feed?

    I have never given mine scratch feed, since it's only a treat not a food. We introduced organic layer always at 15 weeks

    I did not give my chickens scratch feed until they were laying.

    Thanks. I was going to use it as a treat. Just didn't want to start to early
