    Shoot I remember when I was a kid cracked corn was the only feed for chickens. Probably why they tasted so good when they were butchered.

    me too just corn. I think one time I remember mom saying they were going to buy some "store bought food" because they had stopped laying. It was just a little bag.

    great idea ! I am forever making the same mistake LOL. I have a mixer thingy . I dont know what its called . it has a big glass pitcher ? wonder if that would work and not turn it to dust ? did that with corn too. took a hammer to it and got no where so I dumped it for the wild critters.

    that sounds like a blender,it should work.just keep turning it on and off so it doesn't turn to dust.
