Before I begin, I am doing my research, so please no comments on how this is not doable or healthy. Chickens used to live off the land before commercial feed so I know it can be done. I have a few people interested in grain free chicken due to allergies and personal reasons. I know Freedom Rangers are good foragers and I completely free range so I have that opportunity. My issue is, what to feed the birds as new chicks. I know sunflower seeds, flax seeds, chia, soy, and chickpeas are not considered grains. The protein content is there, but is it enough to sustain them until they are out of the brooder?
