    Where to start?

    Is it for chicks? Layers? Broilers?

    What do you mean by "organic?" You can use organic ingredients, if that's what you mean. Each type of chicken has a different daily nutritional requirement. There are a few recipes online for organic chicken feed recipes, but if by "self-sufficient" you mean "frugal," none of them will help you with that. They're rather pricey.

    Oh your right, I didn't specify! It is mostly for egg layers, for my own chickens. Although, I was thinking about different feeds also, because I want to start making some around my town since there is nothing organic around here!! Thank you for asking that!
