We live in a remote place where you can not get feed from a store(no stores at all here) so I would like to make my own. I know a lot of people make their own mixes, and thought it might be fun and helpful to share some recipes! Right now I make a mix of oats, barley, split peas, lentils, black sunflower seeds, flax seed and sometimes cornmeal to my hens and rooster as an extra, they don't like the layer pellets and only eat them if there is nothing else. They are free range also so get lots of greens and bugs daily(we stay pretty green here all year). I have some eggs about to hatch and would really like to mix there feed for them but want to give them everything they need, as they won't be able to free range right away. I also have plenty of eggs, and canned salmon I can mix in too. Still working out ratios for the little chicks though!
