Price of feedin your area

Discussion in 'Feeding & Watering Your Flock' started by sundance, Jan 10, 2008.

  1. I went into our local co-op Tuesday to buy my usual 50lb bag of laying crumbles for my ladies and almost fainted, It was $10.25, 2 weeks ago it was $7.25, I know eggs are &1.69 at walmarts in the boro but my DH is really getting nuts about all that my ladies are costing me. what is the price of feed in your area, maybe i can calm him down some.I'm almost afraid to go for their usual bale of hay,[​IMG]
