    Look at the bag closely. Purina has a variety called "home grown".

    I have heard of this feed before as I have just begun feeding it to my flock since they have all finally reached 18 weeks. I have read a lot of negative things about Purina feeds and, as a first time flock mom, this makes me nervous that I am doing something wrong for them. This feed is about $16/50 Lbs. here and my chickens seem to like it a lot. I free range my birds during the day and they have grown so well. Prior to this feed, they got the Purina brand of start and grow that was medicated.
    My birds are showing no ill affects from it but I will keep a close eye on them......[​IMG]

    The store sold me Purina last time but my girls done seem to eat it. Instead they are eating the artichoke leaves and everything else in the yard.. I have increased their free range time to make up for not eating the pellets... I hope they gt enough nutrition in the yard.
