With gas prices continuing to rise & the feds continuing to pay people to not grow on their land & with people on this stupid ethanol journey using so much corn.......feed continues to skyrocket...So my survival question is...what happens if feed goes so high you can't do it anymore? People fed chickens before feed was developed..so..how did they? If we want to keep our chickens as that protein source...what are our options. They must be easy, nutritionally dense, accessible by most everyone..not waste resources like using tons of water most of have to pay for, etc. What nutritionally dense foods are worth planting & using a natural resource like water? Pumpkins? Squash? Etc.. What grains are dense in nutrition that we can plant / feed / graze / and sprout? What bugs can we easily raise with a small investment, space, etc like superworms and mealworms? What trees can we plant that gives off food pods and leaves?
