He has THE COOLEST job in the world as the small flock poultry consultant for Nutrena Feeds and he has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to chickens and helping small flock owners be successful raising them. We discuss why chicken nutrition matters for your laying hens and meat birds, why straight run isn’t a worthwhile way to order egg laying chickens unless you really want roosters, how to find the perfect meat bird breed for the taste you are looking for, and what to expect when raising some of the different types of meat birds. Whether you eat meat, raise meat birds, or not, we think you'll find much of the knowledge shared by Twain super interesting!
