    This is nothing more than a set of links to resources on how (and why) to formulate your own chickens feeds. I'll just quote here from the first link, on Robert Plamondon's site:
    Quote: Just to expand on that point: if you don't want to take the time to do some reading and research, you're probably better off just buying bagged feed. it's almost always cheaper, and certainly easier! If you do want to try formulating your own feed, a good first step is reading these three sites.
