    I am not new to chickens or poultry. My husband had birds when I met him 12 years ago and we have continued raising poultry. Right now we have 38 Broad Breasted White Turkeys for Thanksgiving, 150 slow growing broilers (Freedom Rangers), 35 white leghorns, 20 Rhode Island Red roosters, 15 Aracuna hens, 21 Barred Rock hens, 67 Golden Comet hens, 30 Buff Orpingtons, and 5 mixed breed hens & roosters. The turkeys, broilers, and a large percentage of the hens will be leaving our farm in the next few months. We like to maintain a young flock of about 30 hens on the farm year round.
    I have discovered answers to my questions about chickens in the posts on BackYardChickens.com and felt it was time to participate and maybe offer some of my experiences. We also manufacture organic non-soy poultry feeds. We are a small feed mill in Western Nebraska. We serve Nebraska, Colorado, and anywhere that we can get competitive freight rates. We needed a better way to move grains off our organic farm in 2008 when demand dropped off. That is when we started making feed to sell to other people. We have made feed for our own animals for many years. We stay away from grains that have a gmo (genetically modified organism) counterpart to avoid any contamination. We use peas, lentils, wheat, millet, rye, flax, oats, barley, sunflowers, and any other small grain we can come up with that fits the budget. We truly are a family run business. My husband and I farm with his parents and our kids are becoming more active on the farm everyday. If you would like more info on our feeds you can go to www.fehringerfarms.com. My name is Sara and I am looking forward to offering my poultry experiences. Thanks BackYardChickens.com for offering such a great place to disseminate information.
