    Is there anybody that knows where we can buy a good machine to make pellets for chicken feeds
    I’d like to make my own feeds for the chicken, and turkey

    You can just give them a mix even if it is powdery, by wetting it and making a mash. Just be sure to give them only enough for 24 hours to avoid mold forming. Moldy feed can kill chickens.

    I have fed powdery self-made mixes before and all was fine. I just keep churning the feed every morning as I add to it in the coop. They pretty much did a good job of eating it all.

    Now since I use chick starter (unmedicated) as the base, with grains/seeds mixed in, it isn't so powdery.
