    I would like to feed my hens sprouted grains, but I don't think that is a complete diet? What else would I need to feed a small laying flock of 12 hens? Thank you chicken gurus :)

    How about a commercial layer feed?

    I am trying to avoid soy...so most commercial feeds are out. Any suggestions for a soy free commercial feed greatly appreciated :)

    Where are you located? Ranch Way Feeds, Scratch and Peck, Big Sky Feeds, Modesto Mills. All make Soy/corn free feed. Scratch and Peck can be ordered through Azure Standard and their website. But if you just start calling feed stores someone will direct you to where Soy Free can be found, it just might take awhile and you might have to travel for it. I have to drive two hours one way to pick up my fee.
