Ok, first of all, I have no chickens yet. I'm just in the planning phase. I am only planning on 3-4 chickens. My husband has celiac disease so I want a gluten free feed (for lots of reasons but mainly so that the kids and I aren't tracking gluten into the house on our hands/clothes/shoes/etc). He also is part of the small percentage of celiacs who don't tolerate oats so those are out as well. As far as I can tell an organic, gluten free feed doesn't exist commercially. Said husband is also an economist and excel spreadsheet wizard and came up with the cheapest possible organic, gluten free feed recipe based on what items are available in bulk from Azure Standard. But I'm not really sure real life chickens will eat his "economical" feed as it's pretty heavy on alfalfa pellets and split peas. So, for your consideration, the 18% protein, gluten free, organic layer feed recipe from the almighty excel: 5 Parts Organic Alfalfa Pellets 3 Parts Organic Yellow Split Peas 1 Part Organic Corn 1 Part Organic Sunflower Seeds I am thinking I would also add DE, kelp granules, brewers yeast and will trial fermenting. And offer oyster shell free choice... So what do you think? Would real live chickens eat this??? They would also get all of our table scraps & get to free range for an hour or two per day in my small backyard. TIA!
