    It's just almost $12 for Layena at TSC, and exactly $1 more at the other feed store.

    (I've bought Flock Raiser 3 times in the past 2 months, but I couldn't tell ya the price on it [​IMG] )

    Pay $7 - $8 at the local feed mill in Missouri for 16% layer rations - 50#. It's $9+ for 50lb at Orshelns or any other big city feed store.

    Last time I bought it was 9.75 for Layena. Last night we go over there to the feed store and it was up to 11. something. What's up with that?

    I buy the organic 17% feed which a local organic dairy has shipped in from Wisconsin for their chickens, $27.50 for 50 pounds, here in Colorado. And grateful to get it - wish there were more sources for sustainably grown/organic feeds.
