Or just buy a bag of formulated chicken feed.  If you are concerned about protein levels bump it up a little by using a chick starter.

No problem with that stuff. I can do gross all day long, just cant do pain or suffering (blood may be factor also.)

A little cat food never hurts either... like treats for my chickens...

Hard time feeding the cat tho. They jump up and steal cat food right out of the bowl and peck the cats.

I tried cat food but they would not touch it... Which seems odd to me because in past when I had birds before the chickens always stole cat or dog food. P.S. I am at work guarding my ewuipment... So eggs it is fot tomorrow too as tje feed store will be closed by the time I can get off work. I will add olive oil to the feed to help.
May your birds always make you smile.

I noticed when I changed cat food brands which looked like small brown spheres they wouldnt eat at first... They didnt recognize and it looked a lot like my goat poop, which they know doesnt taste to good lol
