Near Panic Attack

Yesterday I almost had a panic attack! The chickens had just about finished up all the Milo we purchased back in October and when I called the grain elevator for more they didn't have any to sell. Thankfully they recommend another elevator that had some available; and this time we were able to buy red Milo. With the first trailer load we filled 7 barrels.
Our second load of grain consisted of more Milo and this time corn; the corn is more expensive but I like giving it to the chickens as a treat.
We ended up with 4 full barrels of corn.
It has been awhile since the chickens had corn and they were very excited to have it once again.
It feels good to know we now have enough grain to hold us until the next harvest season.

Glad you were able to get feed. Bet your chickens were, too. :)

What do you use to cover your barrels? Just curious. Here a tarp or plastic would be useless against critters and the wind.

Boy! you wasn't joking when you said there wasn't anything for them to eat.. not a blade of grass in sight.

Bet your chickens are happy. That is a LOT of grain - at least it will last a while....
