    I live in southern worcester county (Oxford/Charlton area), I know theres a feed mill in raynam..but thats a 2hr drive for me..& with a 2yr old a 4+ hr car ride isnt pleasant.

    We have some local feed stores.they all carry blue seal- i dont like it becuase the feeds i want only come in mash..mash is like powder & my birds hate it..& it makes such a mess & waste.

    Theres a TSC about 15 miles from me in CT , but they are so pricey & are always out of everything, plus they dont have game bird feed other than crumbles.

    When i lived in SC 2yrs ago, I was paying $4.75 #50 bag of scratch , $5.50 #50 for layer pellets & i thought $7.00 was high for gamebird food..which was all sorts of beans & stuff that looked like food & the birds loved it.
    Now im paying like $13.00 #50 of any type of feed...WOW!. have the feed prices almost tripled everywhere, or is it just because im up north?.

    Any recommondations would be appreciated- thanks

    your store that carries the Blue Seal...they can't get pellets or won't. because BS puts out a pellet, crumbles and mash... I would ask your store to order it for you, if they're already getting the one, they might get the other for you. good luck...
    We have a BS store right in our town, lucky i guess!
