    I always get mine at custommilling.com because I am positive it's the right brand/type and it's the pure white powder type. It cost me 50.00 that is including shipping and it was here in two days! It lasted me a year for a 50 lb bag and I have A LOT of chickens! LOL

    After calling around to all the feed stores around the area & couldn't find any, I decided before I buy online that I should try our local health food store. They had plenty! If you have any near you, give them a call!
