    I have a local feed mill that will mix a recipe for me if I give him ingredients and amounts. I want to give my flock a good feed that is 50% or less corn since its so hard to find non-mgo corn. I would be interested in all the recipes you are willing to share. I have a flock of 33, so I buy my feed in 100lb sacks. Thanks!

    Get a list and price of feed options from the mill. It will help you create a goal price point. You can easily eliminate all the corn. Cost will go up but there are a lot of alternatives.

    Thanks, I will do that. I want my girls to eat the best I can give them. It can be overwhelming to try and select the best ingredients, when their is so much to choose from and I don't have experience with this.
