    I was looking into mixing my own feed for my chickens. I found the following recipe online that I think could work.

    4 cups oat groats
    4 cups BOSS
    4 cups hard red wheat berries
    4 cups soft white wheat berries
    2 cups triticale berries
    2 cups millet
    2 cups sesame seeds
    1 cup flax seeds
    1/2 cup brewer's yeast
    1/4 cup kelp granules

    Does this sound like a decent recipe? I don't remember where I saw this but it might have been someone on here. LOL

    Does it matter if the the ingredients are "hulled vs unhulled" or "toasted vs raw"?

    Also is there a nutritional difference between winter or spring for the wheat berries?

    I noticed that my girls will not eat BARLEY so I want to stay away from that.

    Thanks for any help, Teri
