I'm not far from Washington. Holler at me when you're in town.
Still not standing like she should but getting better. She is still sitting back on her legs, but is able to hold her body higher. I'm going to give her a couple weeks to see if it improves.
I hope she gets better. Is she eating and drinking ok?
Gracie? Did you find another place to buy your Flockraiser pellets? It's feed day for me and I'm trying to figure out what to do. TSC only sells Flockraiser crumble and I don't like crumble.
Does anyone know where I can get Flockraiser pellets? Or any other type of pellet feed that all ages of poultry, waterfowl and game birds can eat? This feed thing is driving me crazy!
Has anyone ever heard of feeding poulty "dairy pellets"? A lady at a feed store was telling me that she feeds her chickens dairy pellets. I was like, "HUH"?
Ingredients are as follows:
Processed grain by-products
Plant protein products
Roughage products (???)

She is eating and drinking well! She is also very alert and talkative. I'm thinking she will recover, but it's just a waiting game right now.
G&H Seed in Iowa, LA sells the flock raiser in pellets. They are charging $17.50 a bag. I don't know what kind of bulk discount they give. Do you have a local feed mill that could do a custom mix for you? If you can buy in bulk and store it, that may be your best bet. I'd buy in bulk if I had the place to store it!
Glad to hear about your baby.
Yes, there is a feed mill but the cost still averages about $18.00 a bag. So it's no savings going that route.
SALT is the one main thing you have to watch out when feeding gross amounts of other livestock feed, these rations are developed for Large animal diets so they are formulated with way more concentrated amount of salt per lb. than poultry rations. even though most fowl esp. chickens have a strong constitution/cast iron gut, their excretory systems/kidneys are delicate and excessive amounts of salt is hard for them to process(they don't sweat either, too) LOL
You can't ask your feed store to just order it for you? If they will just get a few bags of crumbles to hold you over until it comes in. My feed store orders my feed for me special and now they stock it just for me. It might be worth asking them.
still have chicks? I'm willing to drive. I'm ready for more now that mine are laying, but not sitting.
I went to buy feed today and the feed store near me does not carry flockraiser or broiler feed at all. I told them I thought it was an 18% protien feed that could be fed to all types of poultry. She went to check with the buyer, manager and told me it was the same as game bird feed? Does this sound right. I wanted it for the Cornish X boilers several of us are buying from Meyers.
You can do a few things.....Get the tags off the bags and compare or just go on line and look it up. Does that feed store sell Purina products? if not what feed do they sell? I use a feed called Purina Show Bird and Broiler Complete. I actually use both that and the Purina Flock Raiser. Nutrina has a feed for Meat Birds that is also good.
