Ok so our chicken budget is as close to zero as possible. Mostly because we are broke, but also because we have family that says we wont be able to raise them for as cheap as we think we will. We've recycled stuff from family to make the coop and run, worked out a deal with a local farmer to help him out for a day to get 3, maybe 4 pullet chicks. Now for the feeding part. We want to raise them as cheaply as possible, so they will be getting table scraps, worms from our worm bin and they will have free range during the day. For their grains we are thinking fermented and sprouted oats mixed with a bit of fermented layer mash. If we can find a way the is cheaper we will. So, does that sound like it would provide everything needed? If not, what can we switch so it would?
