    Ouch. It wasn't that much the last time I bought it, (9 something for scratch and 10 something for layer pellets) but that was a couple weeks ago. It seems like every time I go to the feed store, prices have risen.

    Quote:I'm about in the same ballpark. Feed costs in the PNW and west coast have always been many %% higher.

    50lbs Layer at Wal-Mart 9.99
    50lbs Scratch at Wal-Mart 9.99
    50lbs "Grain" (oats/wheat/corn/etc mix) at Big R (our version of TSC) 8.99
    50lbs Non-Medicated Starter at Big R 12.99
    50lbs Layer at Big R 11.99

    Depending on when I need it, I get it different places. Wal-Mart is about 5 miles out of my way of travel. So if I need feed but don't need groceries, I get the feed at Big R 'cause it's right on my path home from work. But if I need groceries too, I get the feed at Wal-Mart.

    I love Big R. Too bad we don't have those on this side of the cascades.
