    I'm not good at finding this kind of information out on the web. Can anyone help me figure out where to go for food for chickens? I live in the Chicago area but work in Naperville. If you know of something in Naperville, (or DuPage or Kane counties), that would be a BIG help! Thanks! Maybe you also know where to get pine shavings?

    I live in northwest indiana...I buy feed and pine shavings in bulk and transport it in smaller quantities throughout the Chicagoland area. I don't have all types of feed and I don't get into the city everyday but I may be able to help you if you let me know what type of feed you are looking for and when you will need it. I always have pine shavings either loose or in bundles and chicken layer feed in 40# bags.
    You may find it elsewhere but if not contact me...I travel to most of the larger horse boarding/training facilities...I may be able to meet you at one of them...I think I will be working on a horse starting this week in Wadsworth...I don't know where that is in relation to you.
