Does anyone know what they fed their chickens in the old days? I would like to get back to basics, and our family is trying to eat whole foods, so why not all our animals too? It piqued my curiosity when i saw an oldfashioned feed bag with the ingredients printed on it. It was awesome! It had dried milk, bone meal, blood meal, corn, etc. All great things and only like 8 ingredients. I guess I would like to simplify and give them the best nutrition without searching the ends of the earth for organic grain, vitamin packs, etc. or making them special treats. For instance, what do the amish feed their chickens? Mine are free-range, but of course, being in MI they do have to have well rounded feed for winter. Any Ideas?
