    I feed my ducks Purina Flock Raiser. Last month the bag of feed was $17, this month (3 weeks later) it was $21. Just curious as to what others are paying and whether you are seeing the prices jump from month to month?

    I'm feeding Mana-Pro eggmaker crumble for 12$ for a 40 lb bag for my bigguns, and $3.55 for a 5 lb bag of Nutrena Naturewise chick starter for my little peeps.

    We feed our ducks an all purpose poultry from Dels Farm Supply.

    The price has gone up 50% in the past year.


    Flock management is in order.

    I signed up a couple of months ago. Got one $3 coupon but that is all.

    I am guessing that it is related to the number of animals you have. I only have six.

    Quote:could be but I will say this I have 3 mini dachshunds, one chocolate dapple, one piebald, and one wild boar[red] so we do have something in common, but I don't buy Purina dog food.

    I keep all my feed receipts in one spot just so I can check the price changes over time. Your question got me going on checking my old receipts, which I had been meaning to do for awhile now.
    Here is a sampling of the prices I have paid ...

    I feed Albers All Purpose Waterfowl:
    9-14-11 it was $17.39
    5-17-11 it was $16.09
    2-24-11 it was $15.99
    8-16-10 it was $14.09
    6-21-10 it was $13.79

    I also feed the laying ducks Albers Hi Lay:
    9-14-11 it was $17.99
    6-7-11 it was $16.69
    3-31-11 it was $16.09
    2-24-11 it was $15.99
    10-26-10 it was $15.59
    9-22-10 it was $14.99

    I also have started using Payback waterfowl for when I have growing ducklings and its price had jumped as well but I don't have all my receipts for that handy.
