    I'm looking for organic layer food, although they are only 6 weeks old so I have some time. Anyone in NC been able to get it? I really don't want to pay shipping, as I bet it's a killer.

    When I was looking for organic feed here in NE Ohio I did 3 things.

    First I called all the local farm co-ops, feed mills, feed stores and Tractor Supply to see what if any organic feeds they carried and their prices.

    Second I searched for Ohio Organic Poultry Feed on the web.

    Third I asked my local county extension agent if he knew any local farmer or small mill providing organic poultry feed.

    Keep notes so you'll be able to compare who has the best feed for the best price.

    Good luck!

    I forgot to say my flock gets certified organic layer mash. I agree with you - I refuse to pay shipping for feed, it can be expensive enough without the additional costs, and I would rather support a local business.
