    Hello,
    First post, here goes.
    Of course I could be wrong but I think when you crack most seeds decomposition begins like when you grind wheat into flour. Therefore can I buy mixed chicken feed and my own grinder and just grind what I need when I need it to help keep up the nutrition in the feed and keep it fresh?
    If so where can I buy this in Marxachusetts?
    Thank You

    You know, I've never been to Taxachusetts before, so I wouldn't know.

    I imagine you'd have to go somewhere out into the country to a place that stores grains.

    Welcome to BYC... I loved you on your first post!

    Eggcellent article, Woodlandwoman. I am so ready to start making my own food. The crumbles just look so insipid. Anyone else do this?
