I'm looking into feeding my chickens more grains, and less pellets. Currently they get red hen layer feed, which is pellets, but also contains wheat, black sunflower and a couple of other grains I cant name. They also get shell grit in a seperate container, veggie scraps in the morning, the occasional tin of tuna, and sometimes a scrambled egg when I think they need a pick-me-up. I'm wondering if I can offer free choice grains in a seperate dish, similarly to the way I offer sheel grit, without them pigging out on the grains and ignoring the pellets. Or, does anyone know about the nutrional benefits of Wheat, Oats, Rolled Corn, Safflower, Peas, Linseed, Rape Seed, Meat Meal, and Black Sunflower Seeds (these are all grains I can buy). If they're going to pig out on grains if they're given the choice, I would like to have some nutritional information so I can give them the proper(ish) proportions of each grain.
