Organic non-GMO chicken feed

Asked July 25, 2015, 10:20 PM EDT

Hi, My name is Bethani Johnson and I recently started raising chickens so that we could eat healthier. I'm finding that it's very difficult and expensive to purchase organic feed that's non-GMO. I read an article that suggested I contact you about buying the ingredients and make it myself. Will you be able to help me find someone in my area who has what I need? Thank you.

Bethani,

I will contact the UK Extension Poultry specialist about where to buy non-GMO ingredients to make your own feed. It will depend on the stage of growth of the flock. Are you growing for meat production or for eggs or both? In the mean time, you may want to check out the University of Kentucky Extension Poultry website at http://www2.ca.uky.edu/smallflocks/Index.html. I think you will find some very useful information and additional links there.
