    If you have a fleet farm store nearby they sell whole oats by sprout!

    My flock really gobbles those oats like they've never eaten before! This is much easier then trying to find a mill. Now if i can find wheat, I'd be set!

    Finding a mill that sells oats/wheat is very difficult. I was buying some from a place 2.5 hours from my house. The hen didn't eat it as quickly as the sprout brand. I use sprout feed in the winter. They don't usually eat feed in the summer months since we have so many bugs available and the feed ends up in the compost pile.

    You might check if you have a local co-op / Town & Country Co-op, for bagged wheat, if the store you use orders other stuff from them they maybe able to special order it for you.
