    I want to say that it's my opinion, about the roosters and the calcium. It is an opinion shared by a lot of people. A regular layer feed is meant to keep your hens alive, and produce eggs. When you are breeding, or need your chickens in "bloom" for show, you need to give them different nutrition then what is in a layer feed.

    Heather, I think she wanted you to elaborate on the barley in bags in the water. Why do you do it (i know you said it cuts down on slime...but why?) and how much barley in how big a bag? In metal waterers or just plastic? How often do you have to change it out? Do you feed the barley to the chickens?

    It is gonna be hard to find organic feed that isn't high in price since the only way you can be organic is if the whole mill is organic and that is difficult! Supp there is a Mennonite person in Berks that has organic but he is not certified so he could be telling you one thing and doing another! JMO if you aren't doing ALL organic for you and your family and I mean everything you eat then y do it for your chickens? Just wondering how others feel not trying to step on anyone's feelings
