Yeah but I bet the profit margin on the feeder is higher than the dozen bantams.  ;)

I can say that the 'with it's' that I've seen are marked up substantially...  We don't handle chicks at my store, so I have no input as to their livestock margin.

 

We don't carry many poultry supplies at my farm store.  I was looking into supplying the local 4H chapter with 'start up kits' for their 4H poultry projects. 

 

The feeders and waterers surprised me when I priced them from my wholesalers...

 

I got out cheap!!  

 

Now, I have 27 chicks hatched on 13 Apr sitting under heat lamps in my dining room...

 

I'm in CHEEP!!!

 

I wonder if my wholesalers handle incubators??
