    They should have pre-mixes already available. Tell them you want a 22% non-medicated broiler feed. They should do the rest. If not... you could find pre-made mixes on-line.

    Normal mixes have a base of shelled corn, alfalfa meal, oats, soybeans, aragonite, fish meal, or even animal by-product or animal fat.

    Different mixes of these ingredients make up most feeds. I would go with the fish meal for the protein along with the soybeans.

    Good luck.
