Experimenting with alternative poultry feeds


We are carrying out an experiment with alternative poultry feed. We are doing this for 2 reasons. Firstly, if we are to be genuinely self-sufficient, we need to produce all the feed consumed by our animals. Secondly, the price of animal feed has gone up 25% in recent months and we need to cut or eliminate altogether the costs we incur to keep our self-sufficiency project operating.

So we have made a start and tested out rowan berries, with mixed results, on the poultry. The video shows the results.
