    So, I was curious....

    In Texas - Houston-ish, Conroe to be specific...what else besides Purina and Dumor is available?

    I am not necessarily out to switch feed, but I was wondering, and short of shopping around I figured I would ask here. I REALLY hate calling places, idk why...I just hate it, plus 9 times out of 10 the person on the phone is going to tell you they stuff they sell is great.

    I ask because while I am happy with the Purina feed - which is what I use as they have it at the feed store where I was already getting horse feed - I was wondering if there was anything else out there? I guess because I did more research into what I was giving my horses and what I give my dogs and cats as well, maybe I was feeling a little guilty over not doing this for the chickens. I just went with what they had. If there is something comparable I might give it a try, especially if it is better for them.

    Like I said, I was just curious...nothing pressing or major, not having any issues...just being nosey I guess...
