I have read that Scratch should be given as a treat and sparingly (like candy) so I give them a few sprinkles once a day. Then, I hear some people give their chickens Scratch - TWICE a day. HUH? I'm confused! I have Layer feed for them readily available (which they don't devour as fast as Scratch) all the time and sprinkle -like- 2 cups of Scratch to them...at mid day. My question is this? How much/often should I feed them Scratch? When? (I also have Cracked Corn and put some in for them at dusk on cold nights. They eat that RIGHT up!) Curious...how may birds do you have and what do you feed them and how often/much? ~c:-> PS FYI: I have 37 birds = 19 Bantams (two of which are roos) & 18 Standards (one is a roo).
