I have 8 Jersey Giants 1 Rooster and 7 Hens. I also Have 1 Duck and 1 Silki Hen who is sitting on 6 eggs whos are not hers. I have 15 chicks in the brooder and soon to be also 8 Light Brahma Chicks. I feed Purina Layena Chicken Mash. Course i feed Chick Starter to my babies. I can afford my chickens but was wondering what i can do to help save on the feed. They do not free range. My Jerseys have a Pen hooked to there coop and my other breeds will also. As i plan on selling chicks in the future and eggs as they are in demand in my area. My chicks are Marans, Easter eggers and Olive Eggers and like i said also Light Brahmas Soon.
So what do you do? Save on feed without free ranging?
