You California people are so lucky to have so many choices. How much do you have to pay for organic layer? I get mine from our local cow-share/grass fed/organic dairy, and I am counting my blessings that we have such a thing here, believe me. But it is so expensive! They order if from a supplier in Wisconsin. ($27/50# compared with $11/50# for standard layer crumbles) I called our Purina supplier when I read on here that Purina makes an organic layer in California, hoping they might be able to order something a little more affordable and the person I talked to said "this organic thing is just such a joke" so I guess they won't be offering that anytime soon! My hens go thru almost 50 pounds a week in the wintertime, I'm having a hard time justifying the expense... though I'm still doing it. But it's also has a lot of powdery content that seems to just get wasted, another issue.
GardeNerd, your coop is adorable. I would post my source of organic layer, but I don't think they want to be considered a source to the general public. Thanks for putting that list together, though - I checked out the other Colorado sources - about the same price or more, dang it.
