How Much Does Chicken Feed Cost?

Chickens cannot eat just anything — they require specific types of food that can provide them the most nutrients while not harming their health.  There are different types of feed you can purchase, and each kind has its own benefits.  For example, one type of chicken feed is chicken scratch, which is another name for commercial pellets.  This product, for instance, contains several ingredients that are mashed together to form what’s known as a pellet.
