How to feed chickens, naturally, for more delicious and nutritious eggs; it can be done! Whether you’re a backyard homesteader or have acres to work with; you can feed chickens naturally for tastier and healthier eggs.
WHAT FEED TO USE
For laying hens you’re going to want a 16% protein feed, that’s the basics. I will go further and recommend that you use a feed that is organic and gmo-free. To ensure that you are getting the best nutrition for your hens and then, in turn, for yourself you should eliminate feed with corn and soy. Corn and soy are high on the list of genetically modified foods and no one needs to be eating that. If you’re chickens are ingesting gmos via corn and soy…you are too.
PASTURE AND GRAZING FOR ALL
I don’t have acres. I keep a small flock in my backyard. But I also have gorgeous and yummy orange yolks like my hens have been in the back 40 all day long. How you ask? I use my weeds, garden and kitchen scraps to keep them in good greens
