I will be getting my 25 laying hens from Belt hatchery February 2011. We plan to sell their eggs to neighbors for around $3.50 a dozen. Around here, a 50# bag of Layena costs $14 from TSC. They will be free ranging on 3 fenced acres,and I was thinking about growing a garden and giving them a lot of the extras. Is there any other ways to reduce the feed costs further? Thanks for the suggestions!
