If you have nice landscape, or would like to know which plants work best with backyard poultry...here is another book that I would reccomend.

"Experince is the teacher of all things." Julius Ceaser

"The only real valuable thing is intuition." Albert Einstein

"Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest" Mark Twain

I've been thinking about getting this book and was wondering if the replacing commercial feed section was very informative?

I have that book and it seems to have gone missing.  I think it is the most comprehensive book out there pertaining to small flock management.  He even looks at soil management.  There is a section in the book dealing with mixing your own feed, but I did not pay a lot of attention to it.  I'd suggest that you take a look at it in your local book store.  IMO, unless you have unique circumstances, you can't compete with commercial feed mixes price wise.  

Ephesians 2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

 Thanks for the reply! I live in a very remote location on an island with no stores. Closest feed store is 2 towns away so not very easy for me to get to. Just nice to have some alternatives :-)
