I have been on a mission to feed my chickens cheaper; however lately they are not seeming very healthy so I think Im missing something. We farm, so we have access to corn, milo, and wheat. I have been feeding them mainly wheat and milo, as they don't care for the corn much. I also give them black oil sunflower seeds, lots of scraps, and lots of garden produce. They also get occasional mealworms, as well as weeds and grass clippings. 2-3 times a week I dump in some layer pellets. Do I need to do anything different? I have 24 birds, and they are not able to free range due to predators. As for their health: The younger ones are kind of small and light/scrawny. Many of them have pretty scruffy and battered feathers. I don't know if this has anything to do with anything, but some hens have dull and floppy combs. Thoughts?
