Ran out of feed and everything is closed! What can I feed my chickens?

What can I feed my chickens from walmart till monday? I didn't realize I was out of food till I went out to feed.

I'm new to chickens, please don't laugh...

If I had to improvise for a few days till stores opened, I'd buy a mix of cracked corn, oat meal, barley, and other grains.

I'm no expert, there is always something to learn, and my birds are livestock, so... yes, I may be quite blunt. wink.png

Scrambled eggs, oatmeal, vegetables...what do you have? Really it won't kill them to miss a meal. Is Walmart open tomorrow?

\\ETA: ah, see the Monday now. they also like cheese. Why not give them left over Christmas meal? minus the sweets.

Walmart actually carries scratch and corn, possibly oats depending on where you're at. If you can't find any of that stuff in the foods section, some fresh veggies, rolled oats (quaker), scrambled eggs and even sausage.

Totally misread that post, not once, but twice! They have bird feed in the garden section. I buy the nut and berry mix and mix it into their feed. Any seed, grain, mix will hold you till Monday.

Wild bird seed, oatmeal, whole wheat bread, cornmeal, etc.
