Feed question

Discussion in 'Managing Your Flock' started by LoganTW, Oct 18, 2014.

  1. Ok so basically I am trying to figure out how to become completely self sufficient, and that would involve not giving layer feed or chick starter, so I was wondering what I can feed my baby chicks to substitute chick starter? And what to feed the older birds to substitute layer feed? A do it has to be something that's raisable or growable.

    Thanks a ton!

    You'd have to grow a lot of different things.There's not just one thing to feed
     
  3. Do you happen to know what I would need to grow?
