I just want to thank Greener Pastures for this chicken feed recipe. I had been feeding them commercial layer feed and treats. The first eggs didn't taste that good - they looked great, but their taste wasn't kinda gross. So, I bought all of the whole grains from the recipe below and have mixed up a small batch. The girls love it AND their eggs taste completely different and SO much better. It's a completely different egg. (My hens also free range during the day.) I am more convinced now than ever that you are what you eat! The grains are a little expensive, but you can order them in bulk, and it's completely worth the expense. DELICIOUS. RECIPE BELOW: http://www.greenerpasturesfarm.com/ChickenFeedRecipe.html "Ronda's Whole Grain Chicken Feed Recipe That said, here is the recipe that I devised in '99 and have been improving with additions, but using the ingredients in more or less the same ratio since 1999. Note that all items are whole grains, and certified organic. If you are looking for the cheapest feed, this isn't it. If you are looking for a healthy, natural feed for your flock, this is one way to go! *** It's not necessary to follow this recipe exactly... just make sure your birds are getting enough protein, which is predominant in the hard red wheat and the legumes. Free-range birds usually find plenty of protein from bugs, etc. 2 parts whole corn (in winter this is increased to 3 or 4 parts) 3 parts soft white wheat 3 parts hard red winter wheat 1 part hulled barley 1 part oat groats 1 part sunflower seeds (in winter this is increased to 2 parts) 1 part millet 1 part kamut 1 part amaranth seeds 1 part split peas 1 part lentils 1 part quinoa 1 part sesame seeds 1/2 part flax seeds 1/2 part kelp granules free choice of granite grit free choice of oyster shell"
