Hello, I've done some research online and in books from the library. I'm interested in making my own feed, but every recipe seems to have a dozen or more ingredients, and i would like something simple. I only have so much space for 50lb bags! The biggest thing i've picked up is that protein is important. My chickens are 8 months old, they've been laying for a couple of months (stopped due to the winter, though i got 1 egg yesterday!). Anyone see any major flaws with the recipe below? They seem to be the recurring ingredients in most of the recipes i've found. 1 part wheat 1 part barley 1 part oats 1 part rye 1/2 part sunflower seeds 1/2 flax seeds The above is free choice. I also have oyster shell in a separate container for free choice. Then they roam the backyard, attack my compost pile, get brewed grains i get from a friend as an occasional treat, apples, raisins, etc. Thanks.
