    scratch shuold be used only as a treat. That being said I make my own mixing cracked corn, oats and black oil sunflower seeds.

    See my BYC page for ideas, if you wish, for things chickens can eat. The two grain scratch they sell here is corn and wheat. I have heard of more grains in scratch sold commercially. Cracked corn isn't cheaper than scratch around here, so it might not save you money. You would need to price them out.
