    Just a general question i guess... might be a little crazy but money is very tight around my house and i was wondering if there is a feed i could purchase for dogs, cats, and chickens... kinda like a cure-all for animal food. Or a base i could start with that could be mixed for each animal... any thoughts my fellow peeps? Looking for super inexpensive food...

    Each animal has their own food needs. With chickens if you can free range them on grass they can get most of what they need from that you could also buy some chicken prairie grass and plant that for them then they will go through less food. I have at times let my cats eat the dogs food. I buy small bites since I have more small dogs. The cats seem okay with it for a while. I do buy the cats their own food it was just a tight 3 months this winter. I would do some research on line and see what you can come up with. Good luck.

    I moved my bug zapper to the chickens run & leave it on all night & the chickens are getting tons of bugs for breakfast. Then at 9 am I let them out to free range all day & they hardly eat any feed.
