I did an awful thing...I sent my husband to the feed store! I gave these instructions....grab a 5 or 10 lb bag of chick starter for the girls. He brings back a 10 lb bag that has chick starter written all over it and I opened it, poured it into their large food container and noticed the crumbles were really big. I put it in their feeder last night and by noon today, they had hardly eaten anything. I saw the girls and heard them at the feeder as usual but no food was really missing. So, I fixed it! I took the crumbles, some rolled oats and a tiny bit of flax seeds and mixed it. I then ground the entire 10 lbs of starter, flax and oats in the coffee grinder on course grind. I gave it to the girls and they went NUTS. They ate like they had not eating on a week then promptly stretched out and went to sleep. I called the feed store and the owner told me she had the 'kids' weigh and bag the starter and never saw it. I have a feeling my girls are eating a food that is a step up. So off tomorrow I go to the co-op for starter. Has anyone else had a bag of starter that had large/larger crumbles in it? I was so ticked because I do not think my girls ate any of it becuase they couldn't which means my babies were hungry for about 13 hours...except for their cooked oatmeal and their egg.
