    I feed my chickens whole oats, plus fish & alfalfa meal free choice.

    My birds are in very good weight.

    I plan on doing the same with my turkeys. Is anyone else feeding whole grains as the sole diet?

    Of course, I will feed game bird started to babies, but plan to wean them to whole grains as soon as I am able. With chickens I start introducing grains at around 3 weeks.
