    I go to a local tractor supply store that sells Purina. We also have a Murdochs, but they do not carry the Game Bird Layena that I buy. I also find that Murdochs is a bit pricey at times.

    We buy all our stuff at the local American Pride Co-Op in Strasburg but there is a feed store on Wadsworth between 38th and 44th that would be close to you. [​IMG]

    Thanks rdranch for the info about Wardles on Wadsworth... I do know about them. I was hoping to hear about other feed stores because I like shopping around plus Im a little weird because I just like visting different feed stores. Sometimes you get surprised by the nifty little treasures you find in other places.[​IMG]

    We actually have 5 feed stores by us - Elizabeth/Kiowa/Franktown) area.

    Frank's Feed in Elizabeth (never been there)

    Big R Elizabeth (great for supplies and hay but they don't carry Purina which is what I buy)

    Elizabeth Country Corner (This is where I buy feed and chicks, super nice people)

    Kiowa Feed in Kiowa (Same owners as Elizabeth Country Corner)

    Franktown Feed (New, I've only bought rabbit food there)

    Hi!

    I hope it is o.k. for me to post a reply here.

    I actually own a little feed store/general store in Deer Trail, Colorado. It isn't as big & fancy as most of them that have been around for a long time. I have only been here for 3 years now, and am still metamorphosing. It is just my family & I, so things tend to get piled up & constantly behind! [​IMG] But, I am trying to make it a fun store, and am always open to suggestions. My biggest obstacle is getting people to know I am here.

    We bought the old Deer Trail State Bank 4 years ago because I was sad that the old building was being allowed to deteriorate. I hated to see so much history about to be lost. So, my husband refurbished it for me & I opened up a little general store. We are working on a new website, and hope to have it up in the next couple of weeks. (woodlandfeed.com)

    We carry Manna Pro Feed.

    I also have poultry from a local hatchery that a friend of mine has started--
    Manifested Wings (www.manifestedwings.com). She has very beautiful, quality birds available for us poultry lovers here in Colorado! Her business is new, and quickly growing! High standards & customer service are very important to her! Plus--she is a very sweet woman!

    I have poultry available year round.

    Feel free to call if you have any questions.

    I hope to come see your store sometime soon. I am buying 2 buff orpington chicks from Aimee, the friend you mentioned. She has been so good to me and really patient with all of my pestering questions. I understand about always being behind because I own my own business too. Would you pm me and give me your store hours? I love to visit feed stores and general stores I hit most of the ones in my area and was looking for new places to spend money on stupid and useless junk I cant live with out ! [​IMG] Thats why I started this thread... a girl's gotta have a hobby if her chickens aren't ready yet !
