    I'm really interested in creating my own feed for my chickens that is soy free and have been starting some research. We have a connection to organic goat whey-in abundance. Is this a good enough substitute for soy in homemade chicken food?

    Hi! I can't say anything for replacing the soy, but we make our own cheese and the chickens love crumble soaked in whey. Good luck!
