I’ve been raising chickens and livestock for decades, and writing about it on my blog, FrugalChicken. I have hundreds of thousands of readers every month who have used my system successfully.
The question I get 7,000 times a day is FrugalChicken lady (yes, that’s actually what I get called!):
I don’t know what to feed my chicks/pullets/layers…help! What should I feed them, and what if I have a mixed flock…EEK!
When it comes to our hens, of course we want to feed them right.
But, there’s a problem with all the information out there [insert dramatic music here].
The problem is there’s a lot of information out there, and a lot of it isn’t right, or at least isn’t right for your flock.
And there’s not a whole lot of “straight to the point” guidance, either (and trust me, I’ve seen what’s out there, too).
Our goal is to keep chickens for their nutritious eggs right?
So, what else can you do besides listening to internet chatter (from unreliable sources)?
Well…you can try to figure it out yourself.
You read everything out there, from traditional commercial feeds to non-GMO organic feeds, to making your own feed from scratch and come away completely confused.
You keep doing what you’re doing and every day becomes an Easter egg hunt because your flock reduces production (or worse, gets flighty and anemic).
Well, good news. That’s why I’ve created this course.
A little secret: Once upon a time I was confused about what to feed my flock to get nutritious eggs consistently. I’ve been through many ups and downs!
I’ve spent hours doing to research – and I mean hours. I didn’t have a course like Feeding Your Hens Right!
Each day, I get a ton of questions from FrugalChicken readers just like you.
I’ve heard you.
Chickens are live animals, and we care about their health. We want to make sure they have the best and most productive lives possible. We want to enjoy their funny antics as long as possible.
Knowing what to feed them can get confusing.
But what if…
Well that would solve a lot right?
That’s why I’ve created Feeding Your Hens Right!
Feeding Your Hens Right! is:
Feeding Your Hens Right is a 6 module video course workshop that teaches you everything from basic chicken nutrition to making your own feeds to increasing the digestibility of your chicken feed – and more. You can do it right in your own living room.

Whenever I have up-to-date research information to share, you’ll be the first to know. It will be uploaded as an additional resource in your course, and available any time you want to access it.
You’ll get instant access to a growing community of chicken owners who want to feed their flocks an optimal diet, just like you.
Of course I won’t leave you hanging! I’m involved in my community, and any questions you have, you can always contact me directly.
Soup to nuts, everything your hens needs nutritionally from the time she’s an itty bitty chick to becoming a full-grown gorgeous layer.
This module covers:
This module covers:

You’ll know which herbs to use in your hens’ nesting box, why they’re valuable, and how they repel harmful pathogens and insects.
Feeding Your Hens Is Right For You If:
You're tired of the internet chatter and just want a step-by-step plan with no confusion, then Feeding Your Hens Right! is for you, my friend.
You care about the quality of your hens lives, you’re in the right place.
You're concerned about what your family eats, and want to control your food source, then welcome aboard.
You're not getting eggs, are super frustrated, and just want them to lay, then this course is for you.
You're tired of the internet chatter, and just want to know what's best to feed your chickens.
You plan to have a flock in the future and want to arm yourself with information.
You're not getting eggs, and are super frustrated.
You want to provide nutritious food for your family, and want healthier eggs.
In all seriousness, I wanted to make Feeding Your Hens Right! affordable and accessible to every chicken owner.
Going to vet school (and most vet schools don’t actually teach small flock management!) would cost nearly $100,000 (not to mention the student loans) and doing all the research yourself (think: dull industry articles and research experiments) would take hundreds of hours.
Think of how many months you would have to read articles and reports to get all this information. Ridiculous!
That’s why I’ve made Feeding Your Hens Right so affordable.
I want to get your flock eating an optimal diet TODAY. That’s why I’ve priced this course super low.
Feeding Your Hens Right is only available for a limited time. I open enrollment for only a short window, so I can give undivided attention to owners who decide the health of their hens is worth the investment.
"Feeding Your Chickens Right" will get you started on the right path to chicken ownership. Before watching these videos, I would have suggested some books on chicken keeping, to someone asking how to raise chicks.
But now that I have seen the series, this will be what I encourage people to use. Feeding You Chicken's Right gives you valuable information. You will gain confidence. Feeding Your Hens Right is a well done course full of valuable information "
"I've been keeping chickens over ten years but I still learned so much from this course! I realized, listening to Maat talk about the importance of quality nutrition, that I've been sort of neglecting my chickens.
There's a big difference between feeding your chickens and nourishing them so they can, in turn, nourish you. Maat will give you great recommendations on feed ingredients, as well as explain simple methods like fermentation to increase the nutritional content of your poultry's food.
Pull up a chair and a notepad, put on your favorite slippers while Maat teaches you what you need to know about keeping your flock healthy in a no-nonsense, laid back, but well-researched, way."
I find that a mix of natural and traditional techniques work well with my chickens. I know what they taught us in school (not much) and I am an information gatherer. Your approach is very practical and open minded on both ends. A rare find.
