I have to say, though, that this thread prompted me to have a look at the ingredients of alfamix (1055, not sure if there is a range of different blends or something), and I see dried lobster is one of them.  Although chickens are omnivores, I wouldn't really like to meet the one who has worked out how to get into a lobster in the wildI. 

I was confused by all the different types of feed garvo do to be honest and I was in a rush to order more food due to

1. The big bag of mash the breeder gave me splitting as I drove my bantams home and loads pouring down the back of the boot of my car into the spare tyre well

2 Making the mistake of filling the grub right up with mash and watching a lots of it fall into the woodchip in their run.

I saw lots of,positive reviews for the alfa mix and didn't have to buy a 20kg bag of growers, half of which I wouldn't need. Im embarested to say that I didn't even know that you had to buy separate growers food for very young  chickens until some days after after I got them home and realisted I needed to get them some more  food quickly. 

I didn't even look at the ingredients because I don't know enough about a chickens nutritional requirements. I just knew from rea ding that it was a good quality product.. I've just started on this chicken journey and I'm learning lots very quickly
