Today chicken feed is getting more expensive. More people are also wanting to raise their own chickens for eggs and/or meat. Raising your own chickens is by far the best way to give you and your family quality eggs and meat, while knowing everything they eat.
Chicken Feed Recipe
- Peas (Protein)
- Wheat (Protein)
- Mealworms, live or dead (Protein)
- Oats (Fiber)
- Sesame or Sunflower Seeds (Fat)
This recipe provides the chickens with all the required nutrients they need, although I like to add supplements to this recipe. Some examples are:
Sprouting the wheat & peas
A way to cut down cost and give the chickens more nutrients at the same cost you can sprout the wheat seeds & peas. Doing this allows you to get much more out of the same amount of seed, cutting down cost more.
To do this simply sprout the seeds like normal, if you need help with this a simple search should help.
- Peas (2.5 cups)
- Wheat (5 cups, sprouted)
- Mealworms (1/2 cup)
- Oats (2.5 cups)
- Sesame/Sunflower Seeds (2 tablespoons)
In order to keep the feed fresh, mix as little at a time that you can and seal all ingredients in sealed container.
