Okay, so I'm currently working on my rations (I'll be mixing my own - I have all the tools, including my Animal Science textbook, which introduced me to the awesomeness of Pearson Squares!), but I ran across a statement in the book that said do NOT give chicks (for layers) grain - like barley, I assume is what they meant. Is there a reason for this? Or am I misreading what it said? Or should I just quit overthinking it......again, again? Thank you!
