November 17, 2010 – Winter Layer Ration Delivery

Today we got one ton of layer mix – which should hold us until spring.  I make a supplemental cocktail with ingredients from Des Moines Feed mill on Hubbell Ave.  There’s a guy there named Stan who thinks a lot about feed mixes.  Interestingly, there is not any GMO corn in the facility.

For the chickens, I have a mix of probiotics, kelp and many other goodies.  I bring that to the local mill to mix in with the usual feed.  Most of a ton fits in the corn caddy and the rest go in an old stock tank.
