Soo I'm curious. I want to make my own feed, and include animal protein in the girls' diet. Most people recommend fish meal, but I am not keen on using it. Fish meal in the U.S. by law has to be preserved with ethoxyquin, which is a pretty awful chemical that has been linked to various health issues, including cancer. Companies which produce fish meal may get licensing to use other preservatives, but it's rare to find a company that does and there haven't been any studies showing the alternatives to be any safer. And yes, for other pet owners, this does apply to any fish meal in your dog, cat, fish, chicken, and any other type of animal food. It is not labeled on the bag because the pet food company does not add it, it is already there. Unless the bag specifically says "ethoxyquin free", it is there. Anyway, I have lots of access to fresh, raw meats. Mostly chicken, turkey, and beef. Including organs. I'm hoping raw meats will be just as good for the girls as fish meal. Has anyone used raw meat in their chickens' diets? How much should I feed per week?
