Food for chickens/ducks

Q. I want chickens, I’ve seen that your family doesn’t buy a lot of stuff so I’m assuming you make chicken/duck feed some how. How do you do it?

A.  We feed the chickens primarily with greens from our garden; however to be healthy and lay eggs, they do need chicken food which contains grains.  For that we are apart of a local co-op where we can get 50lbs of organic chicken and duck feed/grain for $15.  This will last us a few months.  We also supplement their diet with scraps from the kitchen – they love rice, spaghetti, fruits, beans, and even cheese.
