    First things first, i got a call from a friend of mine 2 weeks ago about a dog that had wondered in their yard. She is not a huge dog fan, and i had just had to put on of my dogs down about 8 months ago. My wife and me are very big on rescuing dogs. so we decided that its time to add a friend to the family for our other dog. we drove up there today(which is about 3 hours away) to get and get this puppy from here. Here is where it gets interesting. While on our drive up i spot a feed & seed store with a purina logo on it. I think for a split second about how i cannot find the Purina GBS 30% that I've been so disparately looking for, so i zip the car around and check it out. Walk in the store, come to find out the DO IN FACT carry the food i am looking for......ONE bag left, i snatch it up at a deal at 16 bucks a 50lbs bag.

    long story short, i've been buying manna pro 24% online @ 10 bucks a 5lb bag(with shipping), you just never know when a good thing is gonna come your way.


    we also go the dog lol.

    You just never know where you are going to find gamebird food. I have 2 small feed stores in my area and one carries it and the other doesn't. I have never understood that. Well, atleast you found a place that can keep you supplied with the good stuff. [​IMG]

    Oh, and congrats on the new dog! You did a good thing by rescuing him/her. [​IMG]

    i'll toss one up here, don't want it to get to off topic tho lol, anyway

    yea i was so happy to find the feed, only problem is its an hour and a half away from my house. I do have a feed store about 3 min away, they can order GBS but they said its not purina [​IMG] so i'm gonna talk to them when this bag gets low(either that or send my wife to her friends house for the night so she can get a bag on the way home [​IMG])

    Quote:manna pro 24% online @ 10 bucks a 5lb bag(with shipping) == 100$ for 50#, this dog saved you $84 already and your birds get more 6% more protein per mouthful, this is a good Quail dog in the making and deserves a framed picture [​IMG]
