    Curious how high or low feed prices are across the states.
    In North West Washington Layer pellets $16. 20% grower crumble $18.

    We got 2 50 lb bags about 3 weeks ago...20% layer feed...$16.60 each. They've probably gone up some since though...they said they were going to...that's why we got 2 bags instead of 1, LOL

    Depending on how I mix it and the Grain to Game Bird Feed ratio it runs me from 11.00 for 50 lbs of a 20% protein feed to 15.00 for 50 lbs of 28+ protein feed.

    As of now;
    Corn 15.00 for 100 pounds
    Oats 16.00 for 100 pounds
    Whole Roasted Soy Bean 43.00 for 100 pounds
    Soy Bean Meal (46%) 28.00 for 100 pounds
    5 Grain Scratch 24.00 for 100 pounds
    Floating Fish Pellet (32%) 32.00 for 100 pounds
    Game Bird Feed (30%) 34.00 for 100 pounds

    $15.50 50# lb Kalmbach Feeds

    $17.99 50# lb Purina FlockRaiser

    16.99 50# lb Pen Pals ADM Alliance

    It's all expensive in our neck of the woods. We've not been able to find any feed stores who grind their own. We generally stick with the Kalmbach Feed brand which is a 20% protein.
