We just ordered 50 Cornish X online. I am researching feed costs and trying to keep them as low as possible. We are raising and butchering our own to help save our family money (and to k ow where our food is coming from and how it's raised). If we are spending a ridiculous amount in commercial feed, we aren't saving much money. I did a little research, but it's all so complex- so here I am, asking for help. Please keep in mind that we live in a small town in Nebraska- so "fancy" grains aren't available to us. I found a mixture online that was equal parts of- wheat, whole corn, millet, and BOSS (black oil sunflower seed). I'm wanting to check and see if this will be a proper mixture and provide proper protein and nutrients. Also, they will be in a chicken tractor and moved on pasture/grass frequently. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Commercial feed will cost 32¢ per pound. Mixing our own with the "recipe" above will cost 21¢ per pound. That 11¢ per pound will add up fast.
