Earlier Bert mentions feed company in Quincy which produced chicken feed (as well as for other livestock). Here Bert tells of mixing this feed with his corn, wheat, & oats. This was balanced food for chickens. Mixing it was work. Discusses school-teacher who quit teaching & began grinding & mixing feed for farmers by traveling to farms. She did this until the grain elevators installed grinders for farmers. Farmers hauled their grain in, elevator folks would mix it & then grind it. Bert goes on to discuss use of "oyster" shells for chicken-feed to strengthen eggs.
