I'm expecting my new peeps (first time chicken momma) next month. In researching feeds I am shocked and dismayed at the commercial feeds available to me locally. Almost all had similar ingredients lists: grain products, followed by plant protein products, followed by grain by-products and then the usual vitamin/mineral mix. Huh? What exactly would "grain products" be? Corn, oats, barley (all or some, and is the recipe the same all the time)? I find this really confusing. The whole impetus behind becoming a chicken momma was to have the healthiest hens, and thus healthiest eggs, I can produce. Anyone have any inside info on these obscure ingredients. Seems to me the commerical feed producers have allowed themselve an awful lot of wiggleroom.
