With laying mash near $20/50 pounds at the local feed store it has become quite expensive to produce eggs. Does anyone have a fairly simple recipe for laying mash? With the current high prices for corn and soybeans it may not be possible to produce mash at a reasonable price. I have a large garden(3acres) and can produce most any crop. Recently purchased black oil sunflower seed for bird feeding that cost $30 for 50 pounds. I'm growing sunflowers next summer but have yet to figure out how to clean a few hundred pounds of seed heads. I have always fed layers scraps from the garden. Any ideas?
