Thanks, I wanted a couple of opinions before giving te backstory. When I first got chickens, I used this brand, and loved it. It is very lightly processed scratch grain that the chickens went nuts for. Always clean, dust free, fresh smelling, etc.
At the end of the summer, I bought a new bag, opened it, and a bunch of moths flew out, leaving behind a bunch of spider-webby looking stuff. Gross. Brought it back to the feed store, they apologized, gave me a new bag for free. Opened the new bag, it was crawling with bugs, same musty/dusty look to it. Brought that one back, feed guy says they've been having problems with that brand, but they hadn't gotten a new shipment since early May (it was late August when I bought) so maybe it was just getting old in the warehouse since they didn't sell a lot of that brand. Offered me yet another free bag in the fall when the new shipment comes.
So, I went yesterday to get my 3rd free (supposedly fresh) bag, figure 3rd times the charm. I opened it up, grabbed a handful, and you saw what it looked like in the pics. No visible bugs, but it's soooo dusty. Maybe a slightly sour smell to it.
I won't be feeding it, but wanted to be sure I wasn't crazy. I'm not going to bother bringing this one back, but I will let the feed guy know its still no good. Since they've been having problems with it, I'm questioning his decision to continue carrying it. But, I've never had a problem with anything else from there (I get my layer pellets-different brand-at the same place, and my boarding stable gets grain there). Posted via Mobile Device
