I think it’s fairly safe to say that MOST of us raising chickens for eggs are doing so because we want more control over our food. If your chickens have access to kitchen food scraps, bugs and a little grass..your eggs are already way ahead of even the organic eggs at the store.

If you’re avoiding super processed, packaged food, does it bother you to feed the same to your chickens? I know it bothers us, so here is a collection of 12 resources on DIY chicken foods and methods.
