Flock block update

The flock block is wearing down to more of a bowl shape.

It seems to be a good value compared to the 50 pound bags of feed due to what I think is an increase in protein.

Actually, I believe the protein's lower in the flock block than in their feed (13% vs. 20%), but they do seem to prefer the former over the latter! Pricewise, the flock block is twice as expensive per pound, so definitely not the economical way to go.
