    Hello,
    I have 24 Batam cochins of all colors that are about 4 1/2 months old. I want to feed them a good grower mix of grains and what not that I can get at a local feed store. I found a good "recipe" for laying hens but can't find much of a grower "recipe" any ideas of a good recipe that has protein and all that good stuff? I live in northeastern Utah so it can get pretty cold!

    Thanks!
    Luke

    Best suggestion I will give you......Use already made diets.....Buy grower feed....It already has all the right amounts of everything to keep Birds healthy..........



    Cheers!

    If you really want to do it, only put in one quarter of what ever calcium additive the recipe calls for. That would be the only difference that matters.
