    I got a new bag of hen scratch and it is full of the little weavel looking bugs! They are not like the tiny household brown weavels they look more like pepper weavels. Anyone else ever had this problem??

    I have. Return the scratch to the store where you bought it. Doesn't seen fresh at all. A lot of vitamins and nutrients disappear when the feed/scratch is old.
