    So, i am excited to say that so far I am finding that milling my own feed could save me enough that it is almost certainly going to be a reality.

    No its not. I am the 4th of 5 kids and by the time I came along they couldn't come up names. So my Dad was sitting in a restaurant having coffee and the waitress asked him what he was thinking so hard about. He explained the circumstances and she suggested that I should be named after her. They did.

    Anything motorized or motorizable... a roller mill would top my list, but a grain mill isnt out of the question. needs to handle quite a bit of use, but not be super expensive as that would overweigh my savings.

    I could be seeing $12+ savings a week on my layer rations alone

    So did you two get together and meet and thats why you actually know each others names? Can you tell I am getting excited. Oh Chickie Friends!

    I am reading North and South by John Jakes. Its actually a trilogy about the Civil War that is a good read. Cept I am on book three now and its alittle slow. Like book two of the Hunger Games wasn't as good as the 1st and 3rd. That kind of slow. I am a FAST reader and I started this just after Thanksgiving and am only half way through it. Learning alot about the Civil War.

    Kloppers that's good news about milling your own. Sounds like your mill will pay for itself with the 40-50 birds and feeder pigs on the way.
