    I was just wondering is anyone has supplemented their animal feed. I feed all my flock, flock raiser and I was wondering if anyone added like sunflower seed or beet pulp or anything!

    Mine get FR with whole oats and 7 way scratch mixed in. The 7way has BOSS in it.

    I try giving my ducks some of the scraps that the chickens get.

    Mine love stale popcorn. They also love meat bones, but they don't get them as clean as the chickens do.

    What's your ratio with the scratch and the whole oats?

    I use whole corn for the big ducks. I used to add some oats but they will not eat them so i gave up lol This combo is working well, a high protein feed with the corn on the side, i do toss a touch of scratch(it;s a 4 way) but it's pretty minimal. Mine forage as much as they can and prefer too.
