I've read many posts about people who use certain mixes from the feed store for optimal chicken health, but does anyone make their own feed? I mean, if you had a little scratch like corn or rice, that's one thing, but what about for a complete diet? If I grew mealworms, crickets, and worms I'd have plenty of protein for them and some calcium. Crushed egg shells and whey provide more calcium. Would I still need oyster shells? What else? Oh yeah, and they'll free range too on clover and alfalfa (and more bugs) and I'll be harvesting lots of seeds from pumpkin, squash, sunflowers, ect. I'm just going by what I've read on here so I may be way off on what ingredients actually contribute to their nutrition, but that's the reason for the post. I want to learn the requirements so that I can make this endeavor as healthy for them and cost-efficient for me as possible. I think feed stores will try to make you pay way too much, but either way, I would like to know what I can make myself. My goal is to buy as little as possible so they can just eat what we have.
