Is it a crumble or a pellet?My pullets and cockrels won't eat the pellets.I am thinking of things to add to the starter crumbles to make it more pleasing they eat the scratch up lickety split,and any treats I bring down.Their favorite is oatmeal with molasses and toast mixed in,and yogurt.They love oats and the scratch mix.

Had I offered it to them my chicks would have eaten scratch up lickity split too! It's best to keep starter in front of them at all times - are yours still young enough for starter/grower? and offer other foods in small amounts.
I've yet to see an animal starve themselves to death if food was right in front of them.
To answer your question, yes sweet feed comes in pellet form.

As far as scratch grain goes, I read on this site somewhere not to feed it to them in the summer, it makes them hotter...Of course, most of us need not worry about this now, but a little FYI.

I don't recommend you feed any chickens sweet feed as the molasses works as a natural laxative, and will give them a bad case of the runny poo's.
