I am thinking of driving out to Modesto Milling to purchase organic feed, scratch etc as it is much cheaper bought direct than from the sources I know of in the area. I have tried using the shipping method also and the shipping costs were more than the feed!!) The journey will take me twice as long and use twice as much fuel as the alternatives but the savings seem worth it (50lb layer pellets for less than $21). As I have a Honda Pilot and only need supplies for my 6 hens, I have ample room for extras. Is there anyone who wants to order and contribute towards the gas cost? Am thinking of making the trip one day next week. I can let people know the costs for options if anyone is interested - they also have food grade DE and oyster shell.
