    I'm waiting on a call back from Centre Hall feed. Also, I was wrong about the protein contents. Mill Hall (Albright's) feed mill has 16% and Centre Hall has 20%.

    I'm reading that 20% is good for growing and then you should lower it for laying? Is this right? How much does it matter?

    20% is high for layers. 16-18% is ideal

    Thanks. Who knew there was so much to learn about chickens. :) A friend just got them and she's asking ME everything. I want to tell her to read books like I did or research online. Why do I have to do all the work?

    anyone looking for a 3rd shift job let me know

    I admit the pay is bad to start but gets better with time (I think it is only 10.50 to start, Not sure though, I have been there for 17 years so really wouldn't know )
    must have a little bit of mechanical ability

    can be personally trained by yours truly
