Levels/percentages of nutrients is most important.....ingredients could vary.

You'd have to do a lot of research to truly understand the tie between the 2.

What each nutrient is for regarding health of birds and the best ingredient for you to provide it.

Even with good research, I wouldn't be able to do the needed testing of ingredients.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
