    My babies are still on medicated starter, and it was $12.00 for a 50# bag. It's lasted 16 bantam silkies 5 weeks, 3 days so far, and I think I have 2 weeks worth left in the bag....I'm not complaining, they seem to be doing great with it....

    $1 USD is worth only $1.06 Canadian dollars. That's equal to $20.62 USD for feed.
