    I am looking for the best bang for the buck but there are a lot of options to review with amazon.com, walmart.com, tractorsupply.com, etc.

    Do you buy feed online? What are the best deals you have come across?

    For how many birds? That could make a difference since you don't want to buy more than can be used within a few weeks.

    Not online, but my local Tractor Supply sells feed from a local farm. It's much fresher than any of the name brands they carry. The name brand stuff is usually 3 months to over a year old :he.

    Amazon is not even close to the prices at our Tractor Supply.

    I don't know, I don't see any fresh organic locally grown feed on Amazon for $25 per 50 lbs.

    We have a local feed mill as well. I may check there.
