finding high quality non medicated chicken feed

We finally found a source for high quality non-medicated chicken feed when some friends of ours asked us to join in on their recent bulk feed purchase. Why pay more for high quality chicken feed? If you look at the ingredient label of most feed store feed bags you'll notice several vague terms like "grain products" and "plant protein products". 

Our new Stihl MS 211 chainsaw is almost a year old. I've got a complete review of how it handled and how the carrying bag held up under a year of moderate use. Some readers commented on the merits of using a hard plastic case, which might be worth checking out if you've thought of keeping your chainsaw in an easy to carry container.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton are full time homesteaders in the heart of Appalachia. The 2012 Spring garden rush is in full swing, and they post about their progress everyday over at WaldenEffect.org. They support their homesteading lifestyle by making and selling a new type of poop free automatic chicken waterer that is hands down better than the old fashioned gravity fed bell shaped waterers.
