The guy we get all our chickens from told me to mix my feed and get (all 50 lbs.except sunflowers) 1 bag layer pellets, 1 bag black oil sunflowers, 1 bag hog feed, 1 bag cracked corn. We mix it all together and feed that. Does that sound right? I have tried to feed scraps and vegies at times but am now just learning what kind of scraps to feed. They do free range during the day. I have tried both hog crumbles and hog pellets and they seem to like pellets better. I have turkeys, chickens, geese and guineas. I just give them all the same mix. I didn't know any better but want to learn. Any advice would certainly be wonderful.
