Do you grind your chick feed? What do you use?

I raise quail, and have to grind the wild game starter. I've been using a dual motor 1000 watt blender - but it just gave up the ghost (sniff, it was the best margarita maker).

So what do you use to grind your feed?

I use a manual meat grinder to grind up vegetables, and other kitchen scraps for my chickens. If the pieces are too too big, then chickens would not be able to eat them. Result,,,,,,, it is left to night time scavengers,,, So I like to grind things up.
I have an older one similar to pictured, that stays in my chicken area always. After use, I wash up and dry.

I think this may grind up seed as well. :idunno
This one is reasonably priced New. You could probably find one in a thrift store , or garage sale for much less.

I also use a blender to grind Chick Starter Crumbles. 20181202_073515.jpg Fortunately only for a week to 10 days.
Maybe a mini food processor would work. If you have one give it a try. GC
