Mine is the "store brand".  If I bought name brand, it would be about that much for me too!

That's great!  I let mine out to free range about 3 or 4 days a week, so they supplement their diet with greens, bugs, etc along with their feed.  It's cheaper that way too!

I let mine free range every day except for when we go somewhere and then they are in the run that is over 30 feet long and 11 feet wide so they have plenty of space all the time just watch that spring grass it don't break as easily and can get caught in there crop and then they try to drink a bunch of water to free it them selves and then it makes thing worse and then they have to have surgery to remove it or it can become sour crop

I sell mine for $5 a dozen. Their organic feed is $35 for 40#. I'm on the central coast of California.

Basic necessities can't be taxed.


While I might agree with you, the state legislature where I live doesn't see it that way.

We are starting a small CSA farm. We have about 3 dozen hens of several different breeds/hybrids. Hopefully one day we will be breeding our own purebred chickens for egg and meat production.

Livestock feed is taxed here unless you get a tax number or some such from the state and use that number at time of purchase to not pay tax on farm related products.
