I plan on getting some Buff Orpington chickens to lay eggs this year and would like to get the best feed for them. there are a couple options and i need to figure out the best way to go. on craigslist there is a local man with ingredients for sale as follows Cracked Corn $8.50 Whole Corn $8.00 Wheat $8.00 Wheat Screenings $7.00 Cracked Barley $7.50 Whole Barley $7.00 Red Wheat $9.00 Whole Oats $9.00 Whole or Cracked Roasted Soybeans $16.00 Peas $8.00 now can i make feed out of this or what else do i need to be getting? there is a man selling organic feed for $25 for #50 lbs all prices above are per 50 lbs also. and then there is this guy Fresh ground chicken feed 16.00 for 50 lbs bags.fresh ground on the farm no animal bi-product Chicken will love this mix, and your layering hens will give firmer eggs as well as better tasting eggs. so any suggestions would be awesome thanks guys.
