    So I’m pretty positive I posted a thread about this before but I can’t find it!!

    Has anyone heard of NUTRENA NATUREWISE LAYER 16% PELLETS FOR CHICKENS? I know it’s a little low on protein, could I supplement with dog food?

    Or if anyone has any recommendations for affordable duck food online it would be greatly appreciated!
    (Maybe like $20 for a 40lb bag? That’s what I’m used to...)

    The feed store nearby is not getting good business and has very few shipments with limited stock- I don’t want to rely on them and they don’t have anything but chick starter available right now.... My TSC is too far away right now too.

    I was looking on Amazon for Purina Flock Raiser and with free shipping a 50lb bag was over 40.00 way more than you'd pay in store.

    I have heard of Nutrena Nature wise never used it though.

    I drive 25 miles one way to buy feed for my flock sometimes it's worth the drive.

    How far is TSC from you?

    I’m in Hammond LA and on a bike, so the 4 mile ride to Tractor Supply is not ideal but I could do it.

    We have a bicycle cart that can carry up to 80lbs, so it isn’t a big problem, but the convenience of having food delivered here would be great!

    I could only find 15% online at Walmart- do you have a link to the 19%?

    I went back on there to look again cause it had been awhile, You are right it is 15%!
    Have you looked on Amazon? Or eBay?
    You would be surprised what retailers put on there!

    In our area I can't find duck food so I have to use game bird grower or add Brewers yeast.
    They just don't make feed store like they used to!
