Another topic we will go over is the best chicken feed, there are so many kinds of feed, its hard to know what kind to buy, and how do you know you didn’t pay for low quality feed?

We will also cover natural chicken health, chickens can get sick too, and when they do, you don’t want to pump them full of chemicals every time, especially if you want meat or eggs!
