    If you wanted the best possible scratch feed and was going to mix it yourself....what would be your choices as far as grains ? Percentage of each? Would you mix this scratch mix with any other feed?

    Example...wheat ..10%
    oats.......20%
    sunflower....10%
    cracked corn....10%
    laying crumbles/pellets....40%

    I was just wondering,because I mix my own and would like to see how everyone else would do it.

    I mix my own scratch, but its different every time, depending on what I find to buy. The base of my scratch is whole oats, then I add cracked corn, sunflower seeds, safflower seeds and Calf manna. Sometimes the feed store has broken bags of rolled oats or other tasty things that I normally wouldnt buy due to their high cost.
