Use this formulator to create your own DIY chicken feed recipe to plan (and hopefully reduce!) your monthly chicken feed cost.
For each ingredient you want to use, enter:
- Bags per month
- Pounds per bag
- Price per bag
The page will automatically update to tell you:
- How much protein is in your recipe (laying chickens need at least 16%)
- How much your recipe will cost for the month and the cost per pound
- How many chickens you can feed with your recipe
- How many pounds to feed of each ingredient each day
Organic and Non-GMO complete feeds are listed as a price comparison and you can edit any ingredient to match what is available to you.
Learn more about how we came up with this formulator as well as tips for choosing ingredients and more on this blog post.
The file is available to download for Numbers on Mac and Excel on a PC.
