In the large trash can I mixed all of the grains in equal parts. In the tote I store the layer pellets if you use a grower for your juveniles, store them in a second tote. Mix feed 2 parts with grain mix 1 part. I use a horse scoop.
You can mix it in any ratio you want to of course but I find that recipe above lasts me a little over 5 weeks (using 150# of pellets/grower) and costs me less than $4.00 per day to feed my 40 standards and 40+ bantams any juveniles. Feeding just the plain feed, I use almost 75 lbs of pellets per week ($30.00) and at least 75 lbs of grower ($30.00) plus the juveniles waste the grower crumbles whereas with the grains there is far less waste. So I spend $120.00 - $140.00 on the mix and feed or almost $250.00 on the plain feed. Saves me a ton overall.
