    One of the best ways to reduce feed is leftover produce (organic is best) from grocery stores. The chickens love the greens and it is good for them.

    Your statement is incomplete. If you're going to offset your chickens' diet with greens, you also need to be sure they are still getting the right balance of proteins (including animal protein), fats and calcium for the layers.
