I’ve been reading lots of blogs from people who make their own chicken food. I’d like to do the same but it seems to involve alot of ingredients and care needs to be taken to get the right amount of protein and calcium so for now they mostly eat bought pellets with a ‘treat’ portion of mixed seeds.
On the path to making our own chicken food I have started sprouting wheat to add to the meal (not home grown but maybe one day!) Sprouting grains unlocks the nutrients so is beneficial just as it is for us eating sprouted food. Sprouting the wheat multiplies the initial volume so is also cost effective. I’ve seen a couple of set ups where people do this as the everyday feed and wanted to give it a try.
