DIY Winter Feed Mix

Winter can be a very enjoyable season to raise your chickens One of my favorite winter pastimes is sitting on the front porch with a warm cup of coffee, and watching my colorful flock explore the yard Winter can be great- you don’t have to contend with flies in the coop, and lets be honest- the barnyard doesn’t have that summer time stink

Despite being a relatively easy time to have chickens, winter does come with its own challenges

Chickens are omnivores, meaning they need to consume both plant and animal matter In the warmer months, there is a steady supply
