    So I go to the feed store this morning to buy a bag of PDZ granular...$22.45!!! Holy !*$%!!*!!! The bag won't even fill my poop tray half full. My thought is to pour a bag of play sand in first, then top it off with the PDZ. Question is....did I get ripped off...I almost had a heart attack when he rang it up!! [​IMG]

    I pay around 8 dollars at TSC for a 25lb bag, so that does seem priced high.

    I'm thinking I paid around $11 for a 25 pound bag here just a few weeks ago at TSC.

    Still seems a little high. I would figure you would be less per pound in a bigger bag. :confused:

    Yeah, I think so, too. That's the price you pay for living in a two-horse town I guess...

    Some business is gonna rebag the stuff and brand it chicken coop sweetener and then we'll see the price go through the roof...
