    Oh,
    Your welcome!

    I hope it makes things easy for everyone!

    I love that it gives the soak times and sprout, so you can kinda plan and have a continuous supply.

    Tball~
    Maybe try the millet again, and soak a little less.

    Quote:I wouldn't buy it!

    Buggy means the bugs have been eating it, so alot of it will be broken down to powder. Also, it's a huge risk of them bugs getting into other feed and your home and pantry.

    I learned the hard way with parakeet seed years ago. To me it's just not worth it.

    Also if it's buggy, it's a good chance it's old, stale, feed.

    No no...I'm not buying it. When she told me it was buggy, I said "oh ok, thanks. B-bye". I hate bugs (well, the unhelpful ones anyway). I was just wondering if people would actually buy it. Or if I was just being "a goody-goody". Glad I wasn't [​IMG] thanks!!!

    I'm glad your not! :)

    But sad as it is, someone unknowing probably will.

    Someone will come along that doesn't ask whats wrong. [​IMG]

    O.K.
    I just saw the ad your referring too!
    I can't believe it's a feed store!!! [​IMG]
    I just figured it was someone who bought too much and was selling private!

    Sad a feed store is not disclosing what is wrong with the feed! [​IMG]

    Hello desert dwellers. I'm new at this and am going to start building my run this week. Have a question about poultry fence for the top of it. It's going to be 10 foot wide so I need to weave two pieces of fencing together. What's the best way to do that? It's been my experience that plastic zip ties don't last long in this Arizona sun. I Was thinking maybe stitching it with galvanized wire or maybe hog rings. Any other ideas?

    Quote:That'd be the one. [​IMG] I was pretty shocked that the feed store would be selling buggy feed. You'd think that they could get a credit for it somehow from manufacturer. I just hope other people realize that it's a bad buy.

    What part of Arizona?

    How heavy is your wire? I've had good luck with hog rings, and also J clips.
    My aviaries are 16 gauge.

    We just got the 1588 a few weeks ago and set eggs for the first time last Wed. I LOVE it![​IMG]

    Good luck with yours! And yes, do visit often!! It's a wonderful , friendly, chatty group! Pictures are always welcomed too![​IMG]
