    I am in Hawaii and pay $25 for a 50lb bag of medicated chick starter and the same for broiler starter. It's $35 for a 50lb bag of organic layer feed. Curious to know what you all are paying. How much and where do you live? Mahalo!

    Here's a link to the feeds we use. In case it doesn't work, we pay $15.99 for the All-in-One (18%) crumbles we feed the big girls. The medicated starter-broiler (21%) we feed the babes is $18.99. Both are often on sale for a buck or 2 less so of course we try to stock up then.
