My chickens are about 30 weeks old and have been laying for a couple months. I started them on commercial medicated chick starter crumbles, then moved them to Nutrena. I found a good source of organic layer feed not far from me. I was so excited, and the feed is whole grain, and looks nice. It is locally grown and is a Fertrell product. http://www.fertrell.com/poultryration.htm Such a great change from the pellets. They have been on it for about a month. Its $28 for a 50 lb bag. My problem is that because this feed is whole grain, and not pelleted, the chickens seem to go through and choose what they want to eat and throw the rest on the coop floor. I used to go through a feeder full full of pelleted food in about 3 days. Now it is only lasting a little over 1 day. this could get really expensive. I also wonder since they are throwing part of it on the floor whether they are getting the full nutrition. Thinking of going back to Nutrena just for that purpose. Nutrena says "all natural" but what does that mean, and what is the difference between that and "organic"? Is it GMOs? I really like the idea of saying that my eggs are "organic". Not sure if it really matters that much, I don't really eat organic all the time, but I prefer organic when I can, and it makes them special when I give them to friends. Anyone have a solution to this?
