    Hi Guys,
    I currently use kent multi flock for the older chicks and kent chick go starter for under 8 week olds.
    We have a new feed store just opened 3 days ago. They will be carrying buckeye feeds. I looked online and buckeye doesn't have a multi flock so if I do go to buckeye it will be when all are 18 - 20 weeks so they can all be on it.
    What has been your experience with the buckeye feed?
    One thing I like is the buckeye in under $10 a 50lb bag while I am paying over $14 for kent

    Edited to add * I looked up buckeye feed in the message board search engine but mostly post about Buckeye chickens popped up [​IMG]

    I like Buckeye feeds. Fed the 18% layer and the 16%, but wanted the pullet developer and the feedstore where I got the Buckeye doesn't stock that Buckeye product.

    Hey Neighbor,
    Yep that is the place. I have been getting kent feed from hachman's which I do like a lot but if buckeye is good and it saves me 4 plus a bag that is what I'll go with. The folk at Masserant's seem very nice too and they are carrying some of the better dog & cat foods too.

    As it turns out, mine don't seem too impressed with Buckeye's layer crumble, so I probably won't buy it again. The TSC near me is carrying Purina now and it's less expensive than the Kent.

    Any time you change feeds it takes a little while for them to get use to it. Don't give up on the Buckeye. It is a very good feed and has been around a long time..
