Re: What do you feed your chickens?

I can't help feeling there's a business opportunity there Chrismahon! So much stuff like that, we can't get in France...obviously we can't re-educate the entire French chicken-keeping fraternity re: the need for grit, but there is a decided lack of good chickeny stuff about.
