Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
Course: Recipes for Pets
Keyword: chicken feed


One part of each of:

  • hulled barley; oat groats (I've used steel cut oats instead when I can't find groats); shelled sunflower seeds (in winter increase to 2 parts); millet; amaranth seeds; kamut (I can only find this at Vitamin Cottage); split peas; lentils (I like the orange ones, only because they're pretty); quinoa; sesame seeds

Two parts of:

  • dried whole corn kernals or scratch Can up to 3-4 parts in the winter.

Three parts of:

  • hard red winter wheat; soft white wheat

One half part each of:

  • kelp granules; crushed oyster shells, grit or crushed egg shells


  • Mix together the ingredients. That's it, you're done!


The intent is to go 100% organic with the ingredients, but you can go as organic as you can afford and still feel good that your chickens are eating REAL food.
