    Okay ever since I have had my chickens (3 + yrs) they have always hated layer pellets.. [​IMG] So for the longest time I have been using the blender to chop'em up. They'll eat it no problem.
    Awhile back Deb ( justusnak) was saying that Purina has layer crumbles.. I had no idea.. I got my Purina dealer to get some.. the chickens love it.
    Now I have some mallard ducks, feeding them Flock Raiser in pellets form.... now my chickens flock (lol) to the freaking duck food. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeah, yesterday when I went to local feed store to buy some layer feed she asked pellets or crumbles. They are on grower pellets right now so I just got pellets because they don't mind it. But I was wondering if they would prefer the crumbles. I also HAD to buy them a treat while there, meal worms, not only that but SUPER meal worms. I buried them under some dirt and they had to ACT like chickens and scratch them out. So funny to watch. Cheaper than going to the movies, too. [​IMG]

    Mine love the crumbles, they don't care for the pellets or the mash.
