    No I think that is a pretty good deal. I pay about $6 per 5 lbs but it is prepackaged. [​IMG] My local feed store does not carry bulk oyster shell.

    That's a pretty good deal, but ask at a farmer's co-op or TSC store to see if they have better prices.
    I was buying expensive small bags of it at Atwoods, till I thought to ask at the co-op.
