    Any mills around Seattle metro area? How/where do you search for such mills? I'm looking to feed over 100 hens, and any place I can find to save me a buck is great.

    thx a lot.

    i am thinking of buying a pellet mill for 3200 that you can make feed and wood pellets. I could heat my house cheap and make feed and I only have 13 hens so far [​IMG] . sorry I dont know where there are mills but thought I'd post how much it cost for a smaller one (150 lbs an hour).

    You might wish to give some of these Purina dealers a call to see if they have an in-house brand.

    I sometimes buy at Aslin-Finch on the other side of the state. They mill some of their feed.

    Hopefully there are others in your area with more knowledge. You can find mills heading out into eastern WA grain country but I suppose you know that.

    I'd try the yellow pages for the Yakima area. There's probably something up in Skagit or in south Pierce county.

    I didn't know that Wilcox farms has their own feed mill. They're located in Roy.

    I've heard that they sell their battery hens annually for a dollar apiece.
