I've been feeding my chickens Scratch & Peck since day 1, and the only supplier here is no longer going to be carrying their feed :-( The next-closest supplier is 230 miles away - NJ to MA! :-( :-( :-(
I can buy it direct from the company, but I was paying $35 for a 40-lb bag from my supplier and from the company it is $34 for a 25-pound bag. That's almost double the price. There might be some kind of farm co-op/mill somewhere in my state, but I have no idea where. Most of the rural/farm areas in NJ grow corn for feed or have horses. Or Christmas Tree farms LOL. What do I do, drive an hour to the nearest farm and just randomly knock on the door and ask where they get their feed?
I thought maybe Blue Seal, but I read some stuff about wheat middlings that make me not crazy about feeding it to my hens. Plus, they have been eating milled food since hatch....would there be problems going from that to pellets?
I've even thought twice about driving the 230 miles to MA once every few months, but that's just crazy. Anybody know of any other East-Coast options besides TSC/Purina conglomerate?
