So... I live in the Boonies... getting much of anything around here can be challenging, as I'm sure many of you have experienced as well. I've been in need of finding something high protein/low fat to supplement my chickens during the molt and my options are limited. Obviously eggs would be a great choice, but I haven't seen much of those around here lately. BOSS (sunflower seeds) are a good treat, but they are high in fat so aren't really the best all around solution. A higher protein feed isn't available, so I'm left to my own devices here, and yours of course, to figure out a supplement that will work. I've asked around for fish meal but can't locate any. I'm thinking of baking or at least forming something into a loaf to cut into squares for a suet cage or similar. What kind of high protein/low fat ingredients should I use? Does anyone have a recipe already for this? I'm not looking for junk food really... So here is my recipe idea SO FAR (and my estimates on nutritional content) Flock Raiser pellets - 3.5% fat 20% protein ground Flax seed - 4g fat 3g protein a hand full of sunflower seeds - 49g fat 22g protein (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunflower_seed) quick oats - 3g fat 5g protein a couple eggs for binding - 10g fat 12g protein but as you can see.. that's STILL a lot of fat content peanut butter has a lot of fat too... I just don't know... any experience & guidance is welcomed???
