    Sounds fine to me, although the corn may turn some of your white birds a little more yellow.
    I mix feed with poultry conditioner, insoluble granite and such. I also throw wild bird seed on the ground for them to peck around at.
    This doesn't include the garden vegetables I cut up and throw out to them, though.

    I'd substitute cracked corn with black oil sunflower feed, everything else is OK. Just make sure the mix contains mainly commercial feed.
