    I currently feed fermented whole oats, barley and wheat to my layers (3 pound coffee can, drained) and about a pound of ground meat per day for 19 layers. Plus kitchen scraps. Great production.

    I plan to do the same for my meat birds this spring.

    I am looking for information on meat/grain ratio to run about 20 % protein. Has anyone done this and what were your results. Thanks for your help.
