With the onset of fall here in central NY my chickens that ate basically NO feed this summer (2 acre pasture and woods) suddenly descided to start scarfing alot of feed. My pig that lives with them eats: Fermented whole corn kernels and Whole oats. 50/50 mix My chickens absolutly go bonkers and try to fight the pig for the feed. Its humorous but the pig hates it so Ive started tossing them some of there own to leave the pig alone. Question Is: If I'm lazy and cheap cant I just feed this to the chickies this winter? (Mostly barred Rocks) I really dont feel like getting fancy with formulating some feed Layer mash is .25cents a pound Kernel corn/Oats are .18cents a lb I can easily burn through 200lbs of feed a week $36.00 Fermented el cheapo $50.00 Layer Mash That is $14 a week difference, $56 a week difference, $2912 difference a year. YIKES! I like my birds but they arent pets. Cents are dollars. I will note I supplement with oyster shell. Eggs are perfect, production is wonderful I have no health issues.
