I have a confession - I am just slightly fond of organization. OK, maybe more than slightly. I love charts and graphs and all kinds of data collection, and I HATE to leave anything to chance if I don't have to. For several years we had pet rats (most awesome pet we've ever had, BTW). Rats are omnivores, and healthiest when they get a nice balanced mix of protein, carbs, and veggies...just like us. Our rats got lab blocks (large pellets specifically designed to be nutritionally complete), but as you know, living creatures need fresh food too. Going by recommendations on how often the rats needed certain types of food and in what quantity, I made a chart that hung on our refrigerator to give the sweeties a nice variety of what they needed. (i.e. On Mondays they got cooked navy beans, cooked sweet potato, corn on the cob, and an oyster). I'd like to do the same for our chickens so they are as healthy as possible and lay well for as long as they are able, but I can't find the same kind of information on what fresh stuff to feed, how much, and how often, other than the list of chicken treats (which is helpful, but not quite what I'm looking for). I'd LOVE some help from all you experienced yolks folks! Thanks!
