Oops, I just tried to go to the Modern Homestead site and it says it's temporarily down because some hackers got on it. Sigh....but that he'll be back.
He did a lot of sprouting for his birds. He uses Austrian peas, which he sprouts, instead of soy, for example, which must be roasted.
He says he feeds his birds about 3 oz per day per bird. This is 21 oz per week...heck all the books say you feed about 1.6 lbs of feed per bird, per week, and this has been my experience, so the savings is not much, however, there is the "live/sprouted food" factor to consider.
Check out his site in a week or two. It's pretty cool.
