1 Comment on Small Scale Poultry for Beginning Farmers

  1. In poultry or chicken farming, the farmer’s primary concern should be the feed. A healthy chicken feed must be balanced with right amounts of carbohydrates, proteins, fats and vitamins. Chickens can feed on grains like corn, soybean, wheat or barley. Greens, vegetables, fruits, kitchen scraps, fish or meat are also used as normal feeds. Home made and natural recipes are fresh, nutritional and inexpensive. Poultry feeds of high quality can also be purchased from farms.
