Whole roasted Soybeans
Whole rolled oats
Kelp (sea weed)
Fertrell Poultry Nutri-balancer
I'm moving from VA to TN, and going through the fun of bouncing back and forth right now trying to get the house in VA ready to sell and get the farm in TN ready for spring. I have a Mennonite family in the Shenandoah valley willing to deliver the mix i'm looking for, but shipping is 2/3 the cost of the feed. I'd welcome any thoughts on the subject...
Besides Tuckers, ordering from Amazon or driving to KY, the non-GMO feed I have found is from KNB Dairies. Brian Harville's recipe is not exactly what you have here. He does not use soy, but other protein sources. I'm sure he would be glad to speak with you about it. He also has the capacity to do custom blends too. His number is 615-473-1108. BTW, he now has a non-calcium recipe so the roosters are not forced to eat calcium enriched feed. Instead I use free choice calcium source. I got 9 dozen eggs this week in spite of the weather. It is $20/50#.
