    how are things 'down under'?

    This diet looks good, and expensive as you indicate---- but why different food on different days? Is there some scientific basis, or is it just.....random? Did you invent it or find it? Just curious.

    Silkie, impressive diet, but I too am confused but the changing of daily rations. Seems like a lot of work to feed the chooks this type of diet. I would be curious to see any explanations of why doing this is beneficial beyond using a good organic ration. if I had the time and money I might be just wild enough to try it myself.
