    Hi, I got the feed at a local feed and grain store, after I reasearched feed online. They are located in Bellingham WA. (Western WA.)
    They have a web site and a search feature to find a local retailer. www.scratchandpeck.com

    I got my chics from Mcmurray Hatchery, great chics.. I wish i could post pics but all my pictures are pet type picks which did not show body type although I have some butchered whole bird shots? I am hatching my own out this spring, the claim is the results will not be the same but my hubby and i are teating that therory bird size should be close iam a great stock picker<-- [​IMG] grew up around live stock for market. so i was in charge of that department. my hubby is good too in that area. So we will see if the speed of growth or end size differs?
