    15 and all my flowers and greens which are not pictured are edible, we won't starve and neither will our children/grandchildren, even though they think we are nutcases LOL. We have a pantry full of food I canned that we use regularly. Not everything is bigger in Texas

    I get goat poo too from the neighbors, I trade them for eggs, I make great dirt and they feed their kids eggs from my chickens that have no arsenic in the food or growth hormones or antibodies. They can't wait to trade something else for the food that I grow. we don't need precious metals or stock markets, our wealth is in our food and water and survival of the fittest.

    Is your chicken feed also organic? That's what I am shooting for, but I want homegrown organic. Not stuff i have to buy. These are enclosed chickens, due to the wild animal and not so wild animals. So most protein will come from scraps. Calcium from crushed bone and egg shell. Grain will consist of corn. Would this be suitable?

    Every thing I have found on feed is either buy it processed, or buy stuff and mix it.

    No it is organic, I get it special from an organic chicken farm dealer in central Texas. I supplement this with bugs, slugs and grubs from our yard and also oyster and clam shells crushed. My chickens are fatties lol
