Hey i know we don't all agree but i have my reasons for not wanting to by commercial feed. It is a life style choice i am working on. I will be growing fodder and meal worms possiblely duckweed (if i find it ) and one day black soilder flys. But i don't know when these items will be ready. I will have chicks in a month or two i will get as much ready as u can right now. Please don't tell me to by feed thats not the answer i am looking for. I am willing to cook things for them. I have medium Grit sand. I have a lentils, beans, rice, corn meal, mixed veggies, grass, dried grass and verious mixed wild greens i know are chicken safe. And i can save up some eggs. I am willing to make a mushy meal from all these things or some and ffreeze it for storage ahead of time any idea and advice? I am aware they need a balanced diet. Know what the exact nutritional requirements are at different ages? Or where i can look to find info on this type of feeding? As well as amounts to feed? Thank you.
