    I live in a place where chicken feed is available, but not commonly used. If you can free range your chickens, they'll probably do fine of what they can fine supplemented with cracked corn and kitchen scraps.

    Do you have access to corn and soy or some other legume? If so, I have some homemade feed recipes I could post.

    Are you sure there's no corn? If not, maybe try rice. Neither is particularly healthy, but they add calories.

    Do you let them out to eat grass and bugs during the day? If so, they'll be just fine. Try not to feed to much rice or wheat though. They won't stop when they're full and they'll get fat, which might affect egg laying.

    If you tell us what country you are in we may be able to tell you what you could choose to feed your chickens.
