    I posted this link in the meat chick area earlier and thought it might be useful to others here too.

    The following links are for concentrates to mix your own feed. Recipes are included at the links

    I don't know about purchasing online, but you should be able to find the dealer/store locator and ask them if they can order it for you. In a bind you can use roasted soy beans since it is also a protein concentrate at 36% minimum.

    Any feed mill that mixes feed should carry them.
