    Recently I had to pay as much as $14.99 for a bag of feed and I would have to drive a ways to get it. Then QC Supply opened a store 5 minutes from my house. At first the Layena was $12.99 per bag. Then Tractor Supply started carrying Purina feed. The price for Layena was $10.99. QC dropped their price to $10.79. Then TS put out a $1 off coupon. Now QC has a $2 off coupon. QC also discounts the price $.50 per bag if you buy 6 bags of Purina feed. They said that I can buy 3 bags of horse fees and 3 bags of chicken feed to get the discount. I can't combine coupons, but I also will have my $5 off coupons from the poultry press. The feed mill in the area doesn't offer an economical custom mix for poultry so this is a pretty good deal for me!

    Can you let some of that ooze toward KY? [​IMG]
    We were breaking about even on feed with sales of eggs this summer but not now.

    Lucky! I'm afraid to admit how much I pay for Layena here. Too bad we don't have Tractor Supply or QC Supply.

    lucky you, we have to pay $18.00 at the co-op but closer to home it's $22.00. That's for grower & layer

    I am glad I buy this by the ton from my local feed mill.
    one stop, cheapest price per ton and no worrying about store prices jacked up!
    LOL

    I'm still paying over $11.00 a bag when I purchase by the ton. You are getting a great deal there!

    But I am getting the 20% protein, so I am paying a dollar more a bag for that. (it's only available in the Pacific Northwest)

    Not to the same extreme, but it is happening in my area.

    12.99 for Layena, TS started with purena now it's 10.99.

    Flock raiser is still 14.99.
