Bill Roberts replied: Wow!, I never thought of it,but come to think of it, there was never any grass growing where I Had put Scratch feed for the birds. You are probably on to something. Try seeding the problem "Grass" areas with Scratch and see who wins. I really wan't to know the outcome.

Results of the trial to come...
