    I've been looking for that, too...thought I had it bookmarked, but apparently not! My girls are getting old enough to start eating things other than crumbles, and this looked good. ANYONE know the recipe?

    What are you wanting out of the feed?

    I saw a recipe a few weeks ago...I thought I was in BYC...that included the ingredients listed above. I think it might have included oatmeal, too (?). I was interested in mixing some up since it can be pretty pricey and now I can't find it. Maybe it was on some other site.

    If it was me I would leave out the Layer, it ain't going to do much good in a mix.
    Also with Calf Manna being the price that it is, it would be a expensive mix.

    If it was me I would go something like;
    50 lbs Purina Game Bird Startena (30% protein)
    25 lbs Scratch/ Crack Corn (Scratch would be better)\
    15 lbs Black Oil Sunflower Seed
    10 lbs Calf Manna

    This mix would give you a 20% protein feed. You should be able to get the Purina Game Bird Startena at any place that sells Purina chicken feed.

    You could feed it to layers.
