    Hi All,

    I was wondering if y'all had any nutritious chicken feed recipes that you could share with me.

    I mix black oil sunflower seeds in with the layer crumbles gives them a little extra protein they seem to like it.

    Well I'm trying to actually get away from the processed feed because my chickens start have medical problems, but thank you none the less. Have you ever heard of peanut skins for substituting protein?

    I too would love to see ingredients for a good layer formula. I've been contemplating growing feed here on my farm, but am unaware of how to combine the ingredients.
