My grandson Micah 2 and a half years old, loves watching you guys. He is totally fascinated with chickens and their eggsHe watches all of your YouTube videos and crows all the time, his way of course. We feed up together everyday. Our little chicken farm is growing quite rapidly with our feed cost growing as well. Do you have any ways that you guys control your feed cost? I am an X IT guy myself and love doing things like this and always have. I have been raising a few quail also. I am trying to figure out the best way to manage our chicks and quail.

We try to offset our feed costs by selling eggs. When that doesn't support the feed costs, we cut back on our laying hens and sell some. That helps reduce the amount of feed we use everyday. Outside of layer pellets, we also let our flock forage and we give them food scraps everyday. Good luck!
