    Pros - balanced, healthy, fast shipping, organic, wholesome, can be fermented
    Cons - a bit expensive
    Okay, the price might be off putting, however, when you have a small flock, say plus or minus around a half dozen, you're going to be paying more for less feed anyway. At least you are if you're going to be feeding reasonably fresh feed. Buying 50 lb bags, which is always cheaper, also means feed that's going to go out of date. So, with that in mind, this feed also has the advantage of being able to soak for a few days, which expanses the feed to almost double. Soaking also "ferments" the feed, making it even better for the flock. Fermenting turns 25 lbs into close to 50 lbs. So, organic, fresh, fermenting option. The price starts looking better. Read through some of Amazon's reviews for even more suggestions on how to make it go further. And, last but not least, chickens love it!

    "My go to!"
    Pros - This is the only feed I buy now. I like that it is big chunks rather than being ground into dust like some brands.
    Cons - The price is a bit high if you are trying to raise your chickens on a budget.

    "Only the best feed for my chickens!"
    Pros - Clean, not as dusty as most feeds.
    Cons - Can't get it locally so I have it shipped directly from the S&P.

    We are very pleased with S&P feed. Our girls love it, of course they don't know any different! All appear very healthy.

    I just switched over and after they ate it they rolled in it where it had been! LOL

    I have been using the S&P starter since the begining on my birds, and it has been great as well! I add a little sprinkle of starter grit to the feeder with the morning feed, just in case. They are doing fantastically on it, it also doesn't seem to create the same "farmy chicken" smell with the feces, an important factor in the suburbs! It is still poo of course, but isn't nearly as stinky as others chickens I've smelled. All in all, I think I will keep my flock on this feed at all stages! It is good to know that the layer feed does have some oyster shell and grit already in it.
