My 100 CX will be here this week. I have found local places here in Western NC to buy all the ingredients (the exact Salatin-Polyface Ration) and a mill that will mix them (the mill is however worried about how to evenly mix the micro ingredients evenly). Joel suggests that its ok starting out with a commercial non-medicated feed for first timers and then work with the ration afterwords. I have a TSC and several mills in the area that I could use to get my feeds from just not sure what to do and Im looking for advice from you guys. 1.What woud you guys suggest as far as a non medicated commerical feed or would you suggest going ahead and working on the Salatin ration from the start? 2.Another question to help my favorite mill out. How do you mix the micro ingredients evenly? 3. Any suggestions on suppliments to add to a non-medicated feed that would help the growth of the birds? 4. What percentage protein for the CX should I use? I already have a couple hundred birds sold if all goes well. I dont want to use medicated feeds or feeds with any animal parts in them. Thanks in advance. You guys have always been so helpful in the past.
