Hello. This is my first post and I'll be honest I didn't look around too much to see if this topic is already listed somewhere else. I am considering a self-sufficient life of living off the grid. Meaning I would be self contained and produce my own food, electricity and gather rain water. I am still in the research process of figuring out this life style and I want to research having chickens on my farm/homestead. Since I would be self contained and not getting (or limited) out side resources I would like to know how to produce my own chicken feed. I had a chicken when I was younger and I remember feeding her cracked corn but after looking around on the site I think maybe we were feeding her wrong? But she lived for like 7 or so years until a Fox finally got her so I don't know. If corn is what I would be feeding my chickens then how do I go about it? I would be growing my own vegtables so having corn or lettuce or what not would not be an issue I would just need to know any special things I'd have to do to the vegtable. Also what is the "shelf life" for these things and how should they be stored? Thanks for any and all posts.
