    Hello all wise in Chicken knowledge

    A fellow chicken keeper has recently told me that Scratch grains are NOT good for chickens...that it gives them fatty liver disease..

    Has anyone else heard of this? My girls LOVE their scratch and its all organic...

    scratch should be concidered a treat and given in moderation, not their main source of nutrition. Hope that helps
