    Who here feed it? I am looking into it for our local feed store is starting to carry it. What do you feed of theirs and what is the protien base?

    I have used both the layer and the chick starter from ADM Alliance. They do contain animal protein, which is what I want, but currently, I am feeding mine Tucker Milling and Faithway Feeds rather than ADM Alliance, due to the lower cost of those other two at the co-op.

    Thank you Chris. It looks like a good feed for winter which is when I need it.

    Cynthia how are you liking your new feeds?

    I like what we have now but it is not animal protien based which is what I wanted for winter. Since we free range i am not worried about rest of the year just winter when they do not get that protien.

    I have used ADM feeds from day one with my flock and have had no problems. The EggMaker Complete has been very good at producing mostly Jumbo eggs from my hens, although I do supplement with sprouts and greens. The quality has always been good - no moldy or sticky feed in the bags.

    I like ADM foods, but like Cyn I use Faithway because it is cheaper. I do however use ADM for the Hogs and goats. The Faithway I use has no animal protein in it, but I feed the chickens cottage cheese for that.
