As of today 40% of the feed we are giving the chickens is our own wheat . The organicfeed we buy from Modesto Milling has been reformulated to take this into account. The wheat is put into the feed buckets at the end of the day and then filled with water. The overnight soaked grains are more palatable to the chickens.
Typically the chickens can derive about 25% of their food needs from the alfalfa pasture. This fall I hope to start planting more pasture to try and provide better feed and less reliance on bought in feed and our own grain.
