    Most California/West Coast breeders use Kings.

    Quote:Sure. I have no idea where I'll put another grow-out, but I'll get it figured out.
    Just have to talk the hubby into using the area behind the trees for another tractor.
    I have to find a solution for irrigation days. These chick pens are a hassle on flood days. Any suggestions?

    One by one I'm raising mine--either concrete blocks supporting a wire floor or filled in with sand and shavings.

    Quote:My thought exactly! We should get a mix together from a feed mill (isn't there one in Casa Grande somewhere?). Bagging and shipping is a large portion of the cost - so I heard.

    Wishlist: Quality (no ash [​IMG]) layer feed no need to be organic. I usually use pellets but a mix would be fine. My dream price is below $12/50 lb.

    Quote:Chicken pics in a welding class!? Can I see your lesson plan, sir? ([​IMG])

    It was between classes, silly!

    But yes by all means come on down and I'll show 'em to ya!

    Mikey,
    if I would really come all the way over there I would quietly slip into the class room and learn as much as I could about your subject! He there is a thought: Anybody here in the Congress-Wickenburg-Morristown-Wittman-New River area up for a welding Saturday? Maybe we can rent Mikey? [​IMG]

    lesson plan 3: weld nest box
    lesson plan 4: weld treadle feeder
    ...
    Final project: weld huge metal chicken sculpture (use as trojan chicken when needed to smuggle something into somebodies place)

    I just took the buggy feed back to B-B, they were very friendly & took it back no problem. I picked up a bag of Nutrena starter/grower. It does not list any ash in the analysis. I looked at the Kruse and it was around 10%.

    I'm really hoping to get the chickies outside tomorrow!

    On the way home from picking up some concrete anchors for the coop...

    (and pricing roofing materials [​IMG] )

    Control Tower: "You should keep track of how much this chicken adventure is costing"

    Mikey: "Honey, I really don't want to"

    Control Tower: You should keep track of every penny we've spent on this"

    Mikey: "Sweetie, we're never going to RE-COOP our losses!" [​IMG]

    I got the stink eye but she was smiling [​IMG]
