Grower pellets at the min along with whole wheat . We boil spuds and mash up windfall Apple's and plums too.
The hens have access to a treadle feeder with layers pellets.
The turkeys are hunted into an area an hour or so before shed time and fed on their own.
The geese rob what ever they like but predominantly graze grass.
There is some degree of cross over alright. Our system relies on low stocking density. The fowl have plenty of ground under them. Otherwise I think there'd be mayhem.
