I have noticed more and more lately that when I toss out 2 or 3 grain scratch my girls leave the corn behind. Anyone else have this going on?

Gosh, mine tend to go for the corn most of all in scratch, but I RARELY feed it any more. It's really not that healthful of a treat, so I've pretty much "weaned" them off of scratch alltogether. Maybe their tastes are changing with the seasons?

I quit feeding three-grain scratch precisely because my birds would turn their noses up at the cracked corn. Eat all of the wheat and milo, but not the corn. I suspect it goes off much faster than undamaged grains. I feed whole corn and wheat now.

Mine used to leave the BOSS when I would mix cracked corn/boss together, so now I just use 1 or the other but not a mixture!
