Chicken Feed Pictures

 
I just downloaded pictures from mixing feed this weekend, so here they are, mostly self explanatory.
 
 Sun on coop and my shadow

  
 Grain storage/ green house. Works very well, although in this photo it is rather disorganized

  
 Tubs for mixing and ingredients.

  

  
 A beautiful finished product and some rather content chickens. They pick the whole grains out.

Hey Paula, do you have a blog address? Willow is a pretty area, I enjoy the close up view of the mountain as we are passing through. Emily

Hi! I was wondering if you could tell me what (and amounts) you use now for your chicken feed. I like how you mixed it in a big bin like in this post.

And how much do you feed them each day? How many do you have to feed?

Thanks. Just gearing up to start our adventure with raising chickens.
