    Hi, today I went to open a new bag of layer feed and found these guys in a fold near the closure. They look like worms that get into my pears on my tree, or maybe the worms that like to nest in your dry goods in your pantry before turning into moths. I opened the bag and there is evidence they got into it, with the webbing on the edges of the bag.

    I don't know if they will hurt my chickens... Also not so fond of the idea of storing a big bag of feed with these guys living in it I'm case they make it into the house.. Should I return it?[​IMG]

    They won't hurt your chickens. If you recently got the bag you could return it. At the least, let the seller know they were there.
