    lots of questions:
    having trouble finding a 1 ton recipe to make organic, soy free feed. They all seem like small recipes.
    *****Need one for layers and one for meat birds
    With the meat birds, do I need to vaccinate for cocci or won't that negate the 'organic' of the bird? What about vitamins to strengthen their legs in lieu of the medicated feed we've given the meaties for the first 2 weeks previously?

    Can I switch my layers (1-4 yr old birds) to organic feed & have the other stuff actually get out of their system? Or should I just start organic feed with the new birds since they'll be on a different pasture?

    Thanks birdy friends!!

    Here's a page of recipes:

    if you're going for organic certification, you need to check with whoever's doing the certifying, but generally, the chicks have to start out organic.

    PERFECT! this is exactly what I needed! I just hope the place that makes the feed has all of this stuff. We normally grind our own but it's hard to get all of the equipment out in the middle of winter.
