Do your chickens do the Checkerboard? Mine do, well, they will be over the next 60 days. I am excited and proud to announce that Iron Oak Farm is taking the Purina 60 Day See The Difference Challenge!
We love our chickens! I love watching them grow and develop into beautiful birds, birds that I’m proud to say come from our farm. When a person takes a chicken home from Iron Oak Farm, I want them to know that I have done all that I can to raise that chicken, or it’s parent stock, to the best of my abilities. So when Purina and Community Chickens asked me to “Take The Challenge” I was eager to give it a try.
Purina Mills has a stellar reputation for making quality feed, and has been in business since the early 1900’s.
“Today the red and white nine-square is still recognized as a sign of quality and is one of the most recognizable logos in America through products such as Purina Chow and other brands.”
The thing I liked the most about signing up for the challenge was that Purina stands behind their claims. They believe so strongly in their product that they sent me an awesome new Flip Camera to document the 60 day Challenge and to share the differences I see in my animals with you.
As you can see from the video, it’s not just the chickens that will be taking the challenge, but our Nubian doelings, Nan and Gretta, our Angora Goats, Knit and Purl, and our three rabbits, Darby (the Holland Lop) Wallace (The Chestnut Angora cross) and Grommit (The Black Angora cross)
To make the challenge easy Purina has provided a printable Tracking Form to reference throughout the 60 days. In the first week, The Challenge tells us that our animals should be showing noticeable signs of eagerness to take the new food. And to always keep in mind, to take it slow when introducing a new feed. I will also be sharing the progress on my Iron Oak Farm blog, my Facebook Page and my Twitter Page.
We will be feeding our chickens Purina Flock Raiser Sunfresh Recipe throughout the 60 days. We’ve also added a Flock Block which provides essential vitamins and minerals to free ranging birds. It also acts as a great source of entertainment.
- “Animal agriculture and Purina Mills essentially grew up together as the company became the leading pet food manufacturer in the industry.”
- “In 1916, Purina Mills was the first in the feed business to establish an analytical laboratory to test the final product before it went out to customers.”
- “Purina Mills has also spearheaded the industry’s most innovative system for testing ingredients and monitoring nutritional consistency.”
The best part of all, is that you too can sign up for the Purina 60 Day See The Difference Challenge, and take advantage of all the things that Purina has to offer. You can track the progress of your animals right along with me. Upon sign up, Purina will send you money saving coupons, but that’s not all. One lucky winner will also be the recipient of a Flip Camera and additional coupons towards more Purina products. You’re gonna Flip for this challenge!
