    Hello all. We just got our first ever chicks. We're starting with 3 Easter Eggers and 3 Amber Links. Our 3 1/2 year old and 18 month old love them. We're excited to see what raising chickens in the city of Cincinnati looks like. Any tips on organic feed? Making your own or a good place to buy? We just want eggs but we want to create an organic environment and stimulate great egg production.

    Greetings from Kansas, Team Wilhelm, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! Love the breeds you selected. Not sure on organic feed. Might try typing that into the BYC search bar...I know lots of folks go that route. Good luck to you!

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    It can be very hard to balance a diet nutritionally to provide good health and egg laying. There are a few people on here who have worked hard on developing balance diets, you may want to do a search for information.
