    I have increased my flock significantly [​IMG] this past spring and plan on raising a batch of 25 meaties soon as well. I am tired of paying the $12 @ TSC for a 50lb bag. I have tried searching the forum, but maybe I'm typing in the wrong words, cuz I can't find anything [​IMG]

    Does anyone have any suggestions for feed mills around Indiana? I'll be willing to drive, since I'll be purchasing a lot...TIA [​IMG]

    Im in southern indiana about exit 19 off of i-65 I fed crumbles for a while but like you it got expensive...I switched to laying mash 16% protein and seems to less wasteful amongst the birds at my local feed mill...It's 8.25 50LB bag, although crumbles are about 10 bucks. PM me if your interested in a address and phone number for them. ,

    I live about 2 hrs away from you, in Ohio, and I have rural grain elevators all over the place! Seriously, if the bags weren't 50 lbs, I wouldn't even have to drive to one! I can get a bag of layer feed for about eight bucks, chick and game bird feed is a little more. In the winter, I buy ground corn ($5) and mix it in. Good luck!

    I live in Salem exit 29 off of 65 and I cant throw a rock and not hit a feed mill or store. If you look around it will be amazing how many stores and mills are around.

    Fox&hen, I know this post was a long time ago, but I am in Northern Indiana and trying to find a feed mill so I don't have to buy my feed at a box store. Where did/do you get yours?
