Homemade chicken feed - another update
Since writing my last blog post about chicken feed, I've changed things again. I now order from New Country Organics. Since they don't have milo I had to change my recipe a bit. Here is the new one...
1 batch - in lbs
5 rice bran
I also add a small amount of kelp but didn't include above because I don't use it in my protein calculations and don't know how much I use for this size batch.
This recipe works out to ~19% protein. This is what I use in the winter. I plan to remove the corn and replace with split peas in the warm months. This will drop the protein .3% but I'm ok with that.
I also found a used mixer on the street in our town for $50. I mix a 5 gallon bucket at a time. This helps tremendously, not having to hand stir.
