    2 parts whole corn, ground (or purchased organic corn meal)
    3 or 4 parts whole wheat
    1 part barley
    1 part oat groats
    1 part shelled sunflower seeds
    1/2 part lentils
    1/2 part split green peas
    1 part millet
    1/4 part flax seeds
    1/2 part seaweed
    garlic (several cloves per gallon of water)
    ACV (about 2 Tablespoons per gallon of water)
    organic milk to drink (don't worry if they don't drink it all up; if it
    solidifies, they will ingest it with glee!)
    freshly dug worms
    organic scrambled eggs

    I have worms in our worm composter, and they chicks are going to be scratching the ground with their mama. Would it be safe to make this for them?

    Looks good to me, but I am in no way an expert. You will need to grind everything finely for baby chicks, though.

    Where did you find this recipe?
