    Hello,
    Well my chicks are growing fast. So I am now investigating our feed. Yes this subject has come up a lot. My local feed store sells Farmers best big white bag with no ingredients printed so I went to their Website: http://www.farmerswarehouse.com I am going to call them today and ask questions. So does any one know this company good, bad? I like to support the little guy in town We have a Tractor supply here in town. But I might be going to a big chain store. Thanks karl

    So here is their product page and if you scroll down to organic poultry feed they have soy free is that good?

    So what is lay Mash
    And is soy free what I should get?

    Chicken scratch has corn is that okay.
    The chickens will be free range in my back yard. Should I mix all 3 feeds? Here is their link:
