I've been coming across websites and such were people are feeding their chickens MOSTLY of the land. Having to buy chicken feed is a pain in the butt. Before chickens were domesticated they live entirely of the land, right? Cant we cut out buying chicken feed and start feeding them entirely of the land? Is gotten me thinking.. Already my chickens free range, and I ‘breed’ Termites for them, so that’s a start, and I feed them back their eggs. What about growing a vegetable and fruit garden for chickens?? What veggies and fruits would you need to meet the nutrient needs of your everyday chicken? If, say they got fed fruit and veggies in the morning, free range during the day find bugs and such, got fed eggs and egg shells that they lay, would that be ok? That would be a huge step towards sustainability, not only are you not relying on the store for your chickens feed, your also filling your chickens up with the most natural stuff you have to offer. OK. If that wont work, maybe buying ONE bag of chicken feed PER month to supplement the home-grown feed would be another option? Or if not, does anyone make their OWN brand of chicken feed? Im also talking Quails, Turkeys, and ducks here, so whilst maybe the chickens would take to the new feed well, how about the Quails, Turkeys and ducks? As well as meat birds, but I think we’d buy food for the meat birds. What are you guys thoughts, and opinions on this? Does anyone do something similar??
