Hello Vanessa, I am contacting you to see if you still build and sell the Treadle feeders. My husband and I currently have hens and have recently opened a free for all buffet to any and all dove's in our neighborhood. We are going through feed at an insane rate and really need a Treadle feeder. The only one I can find online has a horrible review at Amazon.com and we would prefer a well built one; however, my husband has a full schedule and no time to learn the pattern and tackle the project. Please let me know if you are still building them and what the going rate would be for us to purchase one.
I'm not sure if I will get notification to find your response here on the forum, so feel free to email me directly at: Beccinco@aol.com Thanks a ton!
I am interested in raising some broilers this winter. But I have no equipment or know-how to do the butchering and really don't want to do it all myself. Do you butcher chickens for people or only teach classes? I am interested in getting some folks together to make a day of harvesting chickens and I am looking at some options, we don't have any equipment, do you? Can people bring chickens to you and help butcher?
Great photos of your feeders!! Please, if you haven't already done so, post that they are for sale at Western Ranchman (I did see that in a comment right?) and how much they cost in our Community Bazaar Section. I'm sure you'll have people who want more info and that is the perfect place to let them know more!
I'm just writing to confirm that you got my reply from 11-05-- the Tour is 12-05 from 10am to 3pm. Would you mind dropping me a line at Nicholas (at) Hepnova [dot] com with the below info as soon as you can? We're going to print very soon.
