    I got my first chicks 2 days ago. They were on basic chick feed that had a ton of processed crap in it. I've since switched them over to an organic, non GMO, starter feed. I see a lot of things for chicks/chickens that isn't natural. What are some natural alternatives to processed things that I can use? My chickens will be free range and only given natural products.

    I buy BarALE non-GMO layer feed for my hens and just got the chick starter for my chicks (2 weeks old now). They are growing leaps and bounds with it. So far that is all they are getting for feed. I tired a little bit of organic greek yogurt the other day, they paid no attention to it.

    For my hens, we give them (as treats): BarALE 3-way scratch, oats, raisins, egg, watermelon (in summer, they LOVE it. I cut it into big chunks and freeze. Give it to them frozen).
