    So, lets say someone was to get hold of some feed that was excess from someone who has commercial houses. The feed would be intended for grow-out of breeding layers (ie, they're the hens used to make the terminal cross for meat birds).
    Let's say this someone got this feed, but the people they got it from have no clue whats in it. They just feed whatever the company tells them too. Any idea what would be in it??

    To the OP--
    I would be willing to be a good percentage of your feed is Soybean and Corn if you are lucky it might have some Alfalfa Meal in it....
