Christie Carroll replied to jaimee corbet's discussion Introducing Chicks to a flock? in the group Micro Livestock

Raising chicks

Does anyone have a used raised coop for chicks until they are big enough to go in with the layers and not need a lamp? We would buy it or borrow it.

Hi Jaimee, I can't reply to your discussion about the mesquite pods because it's posted in a group that I'm not in, but the VPA will be bringing up a hammermill from Tucson (the closest mill) to Phoenix the weekend of October 15th/16th so everyone can grind their mesquite and carob. I have heard that the vitamix can work also.
