I'm definitely moving in the direction of homemade whole grain layer feed and Greener Pastures' recipe is the one I'm most likely to end up using. The only question I have is about the sodium content. I know chickens are not supposed to have much sodium in their diets but as far as I can see this recipe has no added sodium (as some others do...even her chick start recipe). Just wondering if that is a concern for anyone else using her recipe and, if so, what, if anything, have you done about it.
