    Just wanting to get some idea what is paid around the country....
    We live in So. California, and to get a 50# bag of ORGANIC starter is $25
    A 50# bag of ORGANIC layer is $21

    Thought it would be interesting to see where it is the cheapest/most expensive!

    My husband has done my feedstore shopping for me, and I think he said it was $11. Not organic though. Purina Start & Grow.

    Organic layer feed $12.50 for 50 lb, medicated starter feed for $18.00 50lbs.

    The organic layer feed is from a members only co-op so I get it discounted.

    $14 for regular #50 layer and about $15 for regular #50 chick medicated starter. I bet the organic stuff in this area is upwards of $25 a bag...

    Wish there was a cheaper place to get feed here in Wa. Just 8 years ago prices were less than half that!
