    I saw on the news this weekend that "they" are now extending the tainted animal food situation to include some chicken feed. Is there any way to know what feed or to make sure not to get it? Is this a real concern, or am I just being... well, Chicken Little?

    Check the feed company's website, they sould have a statement. The feed that was affected is mostly that being fed at commercial farms which use petfood biproducts to lower feed costs. I guess some hatcheries were affected too but I'm not sure which ones. I checked the website for my feed company, blueseal, and so far they have not been affected. Good luck.
