I myself don't have a large flock, well i guess not. I have 6 chickens and 4 ducks. I buy a 20lb chicken feeder and it takes them around 5 days to finish it. It cost 14.99$ per bag. So its techniquely 3$ perday only on chickens and ducks. When they lay, maximum 10 eggs which i didn't even count i have 3 drakes and 1 roo. So its down to 6 eggs and it is half of a dozen. Thats probably a dollar a day . Is it possible to feed them something less exspensive? Do you guys have any recipes that is easy to make at home? Please be aware about the price. Or can i atleast feed the ducks something else other than chicken feeder? They eat like a cow i am SERIOUS.
