    I found it was much easier to doctor up the feed I had. The right ratios are there already. Some people talk about a vitamin pak to add?

    I
    use this recipe as a guide but do the following:

    1 parts whole corn
    2 parts soft white wheat
    2 parts hard red winter wheat
    (1/4 part hulled barley when i can get it for cheap)
    2 part sunflower seeds
    1 part millet
    1/4 part kamut
    1/8 or less part amaranth seeds (these are tiny seeds and my girls dun like them)
    1 part split peas
    1 part lentils
    1/4 part quinoa
    1/4 part sesame seeds
    1/4 part flax seeds
    free choice oyster/egg shell
    free choice organic soy-free layer feed

    Mine free-range in a small urban backyard so they get grits, grass and other minerals etc. from making our yard totally ugly.
