You should be able to download that from there, but if you're having trouble with it, PM me your e-mail and I'll send a copy to you.
This is awesome, thanks Vehve! Love the feedipedia link too. I think I am getting a good idea of my mix, right now I am mainly looking at protein content. I have wheat, peas and corn available to me, so I am thinking of the following ratio
Corn: remainder (depending on wheat, they never mentioned a percentage just "high")
According to feedipidea peas don't have much for nutrition for poultry so they don't suggest to go higher even though they have a nice amount of protein so I am not going in as high as I thought I would..
I am thinking a 40/25/30 and 5% alfalfa.

Those giants look huge, but I guess they are right when they say they grow their massive frame first and then fill out, the cockerels only weighed five pounds, sussex four. Giant pullets four and sussex three, the nicest looking sussex pullet was only two. Had to check the silkie rooster, over six pounds! And he's only a couple months older than them.
LOL, I grew up in Germany..
