    I used and bought wal-mart feed and went back to my regular feed. I found they consumed alot more of the wal-mart feed and I was going through it much faster than if I used Layena feed.

    Edit to add: I do like their scratch though [​IMG]

    We sware (swear) by it, after seeing the hens eat there eggs. With the other feeds they tend to not eat and I find alot on the ground we have fed more squirrels then chickens with the other feed, lol

    I have never seen chicken feed at WalMart. Is it a regional thing?

    I have chicken feed at my Walmart, I was shocked to see it also but I live in a rural area so that might have something to do with it. They even have horse feed there.
