Those of you who got a harvest share last week will have read my article about our organic feed coming from everywhere but the U.S. now. Over the last week I have been studying my feeding poultry book from 1955. This was when most chickens were still partially outside and their nutrition was understood. I am trying to find a way to use local wheat and another source of protein to replace soybeans from India.
There are some suggestions in this book, and I am working on this. I was planning to work on our poultry feed once we finished setting up the breeding flock. It looks to me that working out the feed has taken on a new urgency.
I will let you know as I study more and progress with this. - Nigel
