I want to grow my own food for birds.. They love to graze, they love to eat out of the hay animals hay, I don't feed them everyday once they are adults so they will get out and go find their own during the spring and summer months. Winter I stock up on bag food. Be nice if I was more self sufficient beyond the bag..

Anyone have favorite thread links to share.
would love to see and hear about your garden /grow set ups
Am starting earth worm areas, a little section each year to improve our drought damage land.
Ideas on fodders and sprouting...

Thanks

I've got a nutrition calculator to help you formulate your own feed here:
https://humble-hills-farm.com/2020/...nd-cost-calculator-for-homemade-chicken-feed/

But I'm gonna tell you, no matter how I crunched the numbers and searched for bulk grains, or supplemented by growing my own, I couldn't get the price of homemade feed to be less than what you could buy at the store. Plus, there will always be that chance you're missing key nutrients in the feed when you mix your own. Commercial feed is down to a science.
