Once you’ve had chickens for a while you may want to experiment with making your own animal feeds. Making your own may not necessarily be cheaper, but you can use local and highly nutritious ingredients. Most conventional animal feeds rely heavily on corn and soybeans as the main ingredients. Unless you are paying for a high priced feed that is tested as being GMO free, your chicken feed most likely is made with genetically modified ingredients. Some people have no issues with GMO corn and soybeans, but others would prefer to use heritage varieties. Luckily making your own animal feeds is not super difficult!
