    Hi.[​IMG]
    I am in an area where I can find no organic feed at my local farm stores. What is a good brand that I could order from? Thank you!

    I think you need to order it online. [​IMG] We have do not have any in our area either and that is our only option.

    I am in the same situation as you are. I buy from Countryside-- http://www.countrysideorganics.com/home.php
    It's
    a lot more expensive than buying local feeds once you factor in shipping, but the closer to VA you are, the better. It would be cheaper to order from one of the West Coast companies if you are on the other side of the Rockies.

    Lots of great places to get organic feed, layer and scratch online.
    I like to add flax seed to mine, and also sunflower seeds.

    I would look into www.azurestandard.com. They do a monthly delivery to "drop-points" in most areas, and, provided your order is more than $50, there is no delivery fee. They sell a whole lot more than chicken feed, too.

    I second the countryside. I am in a co-op who get together and order a pallet that way the shipping is very reasonable.

    They are organic, non-soy, non gmo corn and their layer has flaxseed in it.

    My chickens seem to love it.

    They will actually come in from ranging to grab a couple bites of the feed, then go back out again (of course maybe they are just lazy LOL)

    I'll third the Countryside Organics. Great feed, and the girls lay consistently.
