    I was just wondering if Fighten' Scratch is the same thing as scratch. My local feed store has some Fighten' Scratch from a local mill Faithway brand. Is this still just scratch or is it for fighting chickens?

    Read the ingredient labels.
    I bet the biggest difference is either the protien or just the price

    I've never seen it, but I doubt they commercially market a feed for fighting, since it is an illegal activity. Maybe it's just the brand name?

    I feed that to mine and they love it! Keeps their weight up and gives them something to do and Faithway has been great quality and is fresh since the mill is in Guntersville.
    I feed the 5 way...they didn't like the 3 or 11 way as much and wasted it.
    I also add organic flax seed, organic kelp and organic fish meal to ours.
