First time Flock Mama. I've been feeding my chicks and chickens crumble style feed since the first. I have both treadle type feeder outside and PVC style feeders for them in the coop and run but they still waste an awful lot of feed for a flock that also free ranges. No one is laying as of yet with my big chickens being 17 weeks old with 2 cockerels in the mix. I'd love to try a pellet style feed to see if they like it but the only kind I'm finding locally is for layers. I've only seen 1 kind of all flock pellet style feed online and no where around here carries it. Needless to say, I don't want to pay $30 worth of shipping and have the flock turn their beaks up at it! Anyone know of another kind of pellet all flock feed besides Nature Wise? I'm assuming it would not be wise to start the flock on layer feed since none are laying yet?
