It depends on what YOU WANT
Fresh grains ARE healthier... Commercial feed usually has fillers and animal byproducts, and if you source organic commercial feed, its super pricey.
What do you plan for the chickens/eggs? Meat birds for yourself and breeders? Organic, free range eggs? Or just commercial eggs and commercial meat?
That's what will be the deciding factor on how much you're willing to pay, IMO
I grow a lot of my feed supplies, so I get a discount lol, but I can source the other grains I need organic for just a few dollars more per bushel than commercial, and my eggs are organic, so to me, its worth the extra few bucks. That and I might add in a few extra goodies, like BOSS, for my kids to get better eggs Edited by shortgrass - 10/26/15 at 1:56pm
