At last I have found a feed my bantams will eat. Been looking for a crumble type for ages. And organic too.Will try the organic corn next time I order.
It is expensive though, when you add in the cost of the carriage, but at least they eat it. Will try to keep buying while the budget allows.
Finally I have found a ‘proper’ chicken food my very picky princesses will eat. I couldn’t be happier. I have struggled ever since I got my beautiful Barnevelder girls as they flatly refuse to eat anything that vaguely resembles a pellet. This consistency is great as it seems like breadcrumbs - although I do have to pick out any long bits and cut them up - yes they have me that well trained!! Thanks Omlet - you have saved the day.
my chickens are very happy ladies when they are fed this food
My 3 girls prefer this feed to other layers pellets. I like the fact that it can also be mixed with warm water and forms a good consistency. Whatever the girls don't eat during the morning they get back like this in the afternoon and it goes down a treat, especially with some corn on the top!
My hens would not eat the feed. There for it was wasted.
I have tried (gradually) switching my hens to a cheaper non-organic alternative but it was futile; Daphne and Margot turned their beaks up at 'standard' layer pellets. So I returned to this product and they can't get enough of it, so I will be sticking with it; end of story. The eggs have extremely strong shells and the most beautiful, tasty golden yolks. Happy hens, happy me!!
One of our 2 hens went 'off lay' and seemed to have stop eating their standard layers pellets, so I ordered two 1kg sample bags...and both girls can't get enough of it. Now 4 days later, she's laid an egg! Coincidence? I don't think so. So the 10kg twin pack is arriving tomorrow. Yes, the post and package costs do make this a pricey buy, but it's worth it - I've been taking photos and uploading them to get my £1 rewards, to save up for the next order :-)
Not a bad product our three girls appear to like , good mix and balance of corns compaired to others that they had tried.
First time we have used the product so nothing to compare it with.
New to chicken keeping I bought this as I wasn't entirely sure what would be useful and what would not. There is a doubling up of cleaning products which I don't think I really need especially with the Eglu Go. The most appropriate cleaner is the easy to use spray and a larger size of that rather than a variety of cleaning products would be better. Other items are useful and in use or on standby should the need arise.
