    I am wanting to buy some shrink bags for my broilers. Cornerstone Farm is the only place I have been able to find them and they are sold out indefinetly. Anybody have another source that has them for a reasonable price?

    Ooh, I need to get some of those too.
     
  3. Why not just move up to the 11x18 bags until they get the smaller ones in?

    I just took delivery of these last week and though I might have to trim a bit off after the staple I think they'll work just fine.

    I have bought mine from www.filmtekcorp.com You have to buy it by the case. I buy the 11 X 18 shrink bags and it averages out to 24 cents a piece.
    I just cut the tail off after shrinking.

    Those are the ones I used last spring and they worked great. I ordered from them because they took out all the guesswork -- there is *one* size and you can either get the zip-ties and labels, or not. They also had really good instructions on the site.

    This time around I'll just get the bags, and use my own zip-ties and tape (to cover the puncture that lets the air out when you shrink them in hot water.)
