I have only done 2 tosses, the first was roughly 2.5 miles and the second was this 3.6. I thought the birds weren’t feeling great so I stopped tosses as I didn’t want to lose any because of my own negligence. I did go in opposite direction the second time.
I am just using a chicken pellet, the first few days they were the last thing they ate but after that they arnt very picky. I couldn't find peas at any of the feed shops within 1.5 hrs from me that I called so I said the heck with it, as well as finally finding soybeans and then being way over priced. I wanted to make a quality food but at an affordable price. I ended up with just over 200 lbs for less than $100 and I can use it for my chickens as well so it works for meWhat kind of pellets are you using? I think it's great if your birds like them. No peas? I know peas are more expensive bought separately ... My birds didn't like the all flock pellets I tried to mix in. Maybe I will try again.
