I feed wheat maize and rolled barley. A few people seem to include peas in their mixes, if I wanted to get some peas what would I ask for from the feed merchant?

I've just ordered some micronised flakes-peas, maize and barley produced by mashams. I am feeding layers and growers atm and last year and this will feed breeders pellets later on, mine will not be free ranging in the winter. I do give black sunflower seeds, peas and linseed to moulting birds this time of year as well as pellets.

My girls have their layers in their  feeder, mixed grain in the afternoon thrown on the grass.
Live natural yogurt, any fruit going soft, spaghetti, rice, bread. they love fresh orange juice.
