    I just cant keep up with the cost of my feed! Every time I go its gone up a $1 or so!! This time we paid $14.50 for goat food and the horse food (per 50lb bag) and about $13 for the chicken food!

    Just wondering how my costs compare to other places.

    I bought two 50lb bags yesterday of chick starter, they were on sale for 11.95 but normally cost 14.95, The layer pellets are almost 15.00 a bag for 50 pounds. The pine shavings went from $4.99 a bale three months ago, to 6.99 each.

    my chick starter just went up to 13.00 a bag. I have to buy 1 bag a week plus my laying mash and cracked corn. This is geting ridiculous
     
  5. chick starter 12.95, layer pellets, 14.95, goat food 12.95, when I started, they were almost all under $10. luckily I can get 100lbs for the goats to last a month, and the rest 50lbs lasts a month. I do free range most of the time, and have lots and LOTS of grass on my property!
