More meat (including fish), more veggies, more fruit. Get some unrefined coconut oil to cook with if there's only veggies oils in the house. If you have olve oil at home, though, that will suffice (i.e. save your money). It's that easy. :-) (more)

Chickens are meant to digest corn, so it's totally fine for them to eat it. But you do want them also to have grass and bugs, so you are looking for eggs marked "pastured". Where are you located?
