Layer Crumbles: It's What's For Dinner

My previous flock of chickens would go hungry rather than eat layer pellets. They only wanted the crumbled feed, thankyouverymuch.  I found this rather frustrating because, as this chicken blogger notes, there are multiple advantages to the pellets over the much messier crumbled feed. But if the birds won't eat it, there's no advantage to be had. And so I continue to buy layer crumbles for my newer flock of silkies, even as I eyeball the bags of pellets every time I worship at the High Altar of Tractor Supply.

Here are my girls gobbling up their late lunch meal today; crumbles.
