Rancher have you checked with any local feed stores? Down here the IBA sells feed cheaper then TSC or if looking for extender feed Logans sells their mix (think it's 16%) $10.00 50# there's no add minerals in it. Spent the last six weeks researching feeds for all the critters best nutrition for the buck. Family says the dog and cat eat better then they do-)
If anybody is looking for prepaid phone company customer service based in USA whisper me.
There isn't a feed store close to me. I'd have to rent a truck and make monthly trips. We just have our Chevy Cobalt for now.
My coops are covered with tarps and I open the door each day so they can go out even if there is not run.
I'd like to add runs but for this coop I need to figure a way to push it back into the woods a few feet. I've got the Marsh Daisies in it now and they are fliers. Nice birds, they follow me to the house and I've caught them sitting in the door way to the kitchen. I expect I could move it back with some help but it's just me. Because there are just the three I may add a couple of heat lights. I haven't decided yet. any thoughts anyone?
