    Hello, I am new here and new to raising chickens. I am doing a joint venture with a friend this year in raising broilers. I am in charge of finding some recipes for feed...we want this to be all organic and no fish meal. What do you use? Good recipes? Good websites/link/info on creating our own recipe for what we have locally?

    thanks

    Here is what I use. It has fish in it, but you could take it out and use more soybeans.

    Chick Starter Grower - 19%
    Shelled corn

    1015 lbs.
    Roasted soybeans

    625 lbs.
    Oats

    100 lbs.
    Alfalfa meal

    100 lbs.
    60% fish meal

    75 lbs.
    Aragonite (calcium)

    25 lbs.
    Poultry Nutri-Balancer

    60 lbs.
    Total:

    2000 lbs.

    Can I ask why you don't want to use fish meal? It has great protein and carries things you can't get from grains.
