Hello all! I recently got four bantam chicks and I am not sure what is best to feed them when they grow up. Right now they are on an organic chick starter, but I am not sure what to put them on after that. My biggest problem is that I want a Gluten-free feed and most of the organic feeds I find contain wheat/gluten as one of the first ingredients. I myself and other members of my family have a gluten intolerance, so I would really like to avoid wheat/gluten in their feed. Eventually I decided that it would be fun to make my own feed, but then I realized how hard it can be to do that! After a while and a lot of research I came up with this recipe: 4 cups organic yellow split peas 4 cups organic oats 1 cup organic kelp 1 cup organic chia 1 cup organic dried mealworms Based on this one: My questions are: 1. Is this a good recipe for adult birds? (with grit and oyster shells also available) 2. Can I use it as a developer feed? 3. Should I alter the recipe at all? (Like by taking something out, adding something, changing the amounts, etc) 4. Do you know of a company that produces organic and gluten free feed for layers? Thank you for your help! And sorry that I am obsessed with these emoticons!
