    I can't stand for any length of time without my toes going numb on my left foot with mine. When I was trying to be healthier, lose a little weight a couple of years ago I was going to a gym 3 to 4 days a week. Whenever I tried to ride one of those seated exercise bikes I would have to stop every little bit & take my shoes off and message my feet to get feeling back in them. Legs have hurt me so bad this year that walking is way more difficult. It feels like I have lead in them & they burn like crazy. My butt cheeks go numb when I sit for any length of time. I can't bend over for more than a couple minutes without being in excruciating pain. With each passing year it gets worse, very frustrating.

    Something about kidneys? It's hard on their system somehow. I'm too sleepy to remember.

    What a helluvan idea! I don't have that many chickens, but what a good deal for my horse feed! Pops can't wrestle the bags so I use metal trash cans. Bet I could keep the open bags in the chest freezer. That would be SO much easier !

    Yes layer has the added calcium, it can cause kidney failure in chicks & roosters. I feed all flock raiser & put out oyster shell free choice in a hanging container. Once in a while a roo will go check it out, but they don't normally eat it.

    My back specialist has suggested it, but I take so many meds & it can have so many side effects that I have not tried it. I'm getting to the place where I won't have any choice.

    Mutt if you pour the bags in you can hold more feed at one time, might help if your feed goes on sale occasionaly.
