Organic feed?

I am trying to find an organic feed and it is getting to be a major pain in the butt. Well, actually finding one that the seller takes PayPal is the big pain in the butt. No one locally sells anything, so I have been trying to find something online, but I hate putting card information online, and no one seems to take PayPal. I found one site, organicchickenfeed.com that says they take PayPal, but requires a card. I emailed them about it and they said the login for PayPal is earlier in the checkout process, but I went through it about 20 times and never could find it. My stepdad ordered some from amazon, but it seems to be way over priced compared to other websites(at least compared to the ones that actually list their prices), and actually found the same feed on another site $30 cheaper. Are there any sites you all have used that are reliable for a good organic turkey/game bird starter?
 
I made a spreadsheet with a lot of brand names listed on it.
There are organic ones on it too. This post has pictures of the sheet and a link to the actual sheet. The sheet has direct links, the product names, to the manaufacturers websites.
I'll be back with direct links to a few more organic feeds in addition to the Bar Ale mentioned above.

Try asking at the local feed stores if they can order some for you. They might be able to if they already carry feeds from the same manufacturer and just add it to their regular shipments. You might have to order a certain amount though.
 
I tried getting a feed from tractor supply, but they aren’t able to order it. The only feed store we have is in a bad neighborhood and it’s super scary to try to go to... even the local Co-op was useless. Asked for organic turkey starter, they said they had layer scratch, told them I needed higher protein for quail, they said they had a gamebird starter, I asked if it was organic, they said no, it’s medicated!!!

Oh boy, good thing you know what you actually need otherwise they would be sending you home with who knows what. :th

I've been using "Scratch and Peck" from Amazon but you're right; it costs an arm and a leg.
 
Companies with organic game bird and or turkey feeds:
You can contact each one and see if they sell in any of your local stores, if not you could probably mail order direct from them.
Coyote Creek is the only one I checked and it looks like it is sold in a few places near you:

I think those locations sell Coyote Creek's other products. The meats and eggs and pet food. Only one of those locations is a “feed” store, but it is pet food, dog and cat to be specific, I know cause I applied for a job there once. I’ll call them and ask if maybe they can order the feed, but I doubt it. The other was whole foods, so they are selling the meat and eggs. 280 is a hoitytoity area near Birmingham, so not really the kind of area you would find a feed store. I was extremely surprised to discover a tractor supply store over there...

If mail ordering feed is not an option then you will have to settle for what's local.:confused:
