New NON GMO Chicken Feed Recipe

I was scouring the web the other day looking for more sources of items that we use to make our personal hygiene recipes when I stumbled on a wonderful site called Stone Family Farmstead. I started reading their blog and found this great recipe for chicken feed. They give all the information about it and the recipe in detail. 

It sounds like the perfect feed I've been looking for. Especially using non-gmo products! 


Pearl Barley – High in fiber, but low in energy and difficult for chickens to digest. Should be no more than 20% of a chicken’s diet.

Hard Red Wheat – High in protein, good for energy

Millet – This tiny grain is rich in iron and amino acids

Oats – High protein, adds calcium, fiber, and B vitamins to the feed; good energy source

Split Peas – Very high in protein

Kelp – Adds omega-3s to the hen’s diet, making egg yolks that wonderful, deep orange color

Garlic Powder – Thought of as one of nature’s best antibiotics, garlic brings power to the immune system of your chicken

Diatomaceous Earth – Keeps bugs out of the feed, is thought of as a natural wormer by some

Please visit The Stone Family to get the scoop! HaHa

What do you feed? What kind of containers do you keep it in?
