Personally my birds will not eat oats(spoiled maybe?)As I have heard of some people who do. I use whole wheat as my grain of choice. With the price of feed these days you want them to eat it not waste it.

I normally feed a crumble, but the feed store mistakenly gave me pellets and before I noticed I had already opened the bag. I like using pellets with my large egg layers because it they seem to not waste anything. Some of my Old English just won't eat the pellets as well as the crumbles. It may just be me and more of the crumble is actually ending up mixed into the bedding or ground. I have topped it with a little wheat germ oil and it seemed to get there attention. Hopefully they will get use to it and I can start using it.

I'm thinking about getting away from Crumbles as they seem to go stale faster. I'm looking at going to the Big V game bird breeder pellets at the bottom. The one in the middle is fed by some other breeders I know. Here are the tags for comparison.

If you feed by volume you have to remember that the same volume of pellets will outweigh the same amount of Krumbled feeds so you have to feed less volume of the pelleted feed and make adjustments to your amounts of feed.

I am feeding a pellet 20% it is smaller than most laying pellets. I have tried the crumbles and i like the pellet the best. For me i have less waste. and you don't have o worry about it getting stale. I know that when I was feeding crumbles made from the same CO. it looked as if the were eating it but they were wasting lot it is just harder to see. It takes a while to go from crumbles to pellets but not so long to go from pellets to crumbles and some people thanks they just won't eat it but they will. I know that every situation is not the same and every persons idea s not the same as far as feeding but pellet verses crumbles , I am a pellet feeder with a little etras from time to time.
