    In my research into making my own feed, I have been making protein % lists, price lists, recipe lists, etc. At our WF store, I noticed nutritional yeast, and that it is 50% protein...can it be used for chickens? Should it? Similar to brewer's yeast? Any info would be appreciated!

    NY is very high in B vitamins. I don't know if that's good/bad for chickens. But...it's REALLY yummy. Put it in gravies or on popcorn and you'll keep it from your chickens.
