What kind of feed do you feed your flocks? Acco Feed, Full O' Pep Feed, or Purina? Is there another brand of feed out there that is better than these?

I feed my flock the Acco Feed from Sutherland's. For a 50lb bag Layer Feed it is $10 and for a 25lb bag of chick starter grower it is $5.99.

ADM ALLiance Pen Pals and Faithway Feeds. EXCELLENT feeds. No dust in the ones I've bought. Locally, they also have a 22% layer pellet in addition to the Pride & Pleasure 16% layer pellet. These feeds still contain good quality animal proteins, which I prefer for the condition of my birds and are not as expensive as some other types.

My chicks are on a feed from Lonestar (went to SFA in Nacogdoches, where the Lonestar mill is)
My hens are on a layer from TSC (I think it is Dumor brand) and they get a scratch from Wal-mart (mine has a livestock section....its so weird to me!!LOL) When I run out of layer, I may look into what my feed store carries.

I used to feed Full O' Pep but since I can get Dumor at a better price and it's non-medicated so it can feed my ducklings as well I go with it. I'm not sure what I will feed once they hit adult age. Possibly I will try Dumor Layer crumbles and if I don't see a difference toward higher yield I might use Full O'Pep again.
