Recently I switched my birds from commercial layer feed, over to whole oats (race horse oats) with free choice grit. So far I have noticed that they are not eating as much, they are staying fuller longer, and there has been a reduction in the amount of droppings. I was doing this to condition them for the upcomig show season, but I am really liking the way this is turning out. Plus I was told about all the things that actually go INTO commercial feed. Clay as a binder... weed seeds... and anything else thats unusable in other feeds. In addition to whole oats, what else can I supplement their feed with after show season? And can anyone suggest a good source for info on the nutritional values on certain ingredients?
