    [​IMG] Has anyone else had trouble getting FR ?

    I've called Purina dealers within a 50 mile radius of me & can't find any. Half of them don't even have it & the others only special order it. [​IMG]
    For the past 3 weeks my feed store orders it & it hasn't come in.

    My chickens love the stuff & I mix it with their layer crumbles.
    Miss Q, my duck is missing her feed,she doesn't care for Layena. [​IMG]
  2. I have been waiting for weeks myself... none yet that I know of.. have to call back tomorrow when the truck is supposed to come.

    My mother-in-law works for purina and things are so bad they have cut production on 100's of items. Just wait to see how ticked people are going to be when dog food prices jump because they are cutting production on that next!

    Quote:Wait a minute. They have products that make them money, and they are cutting production? That just doesn't make sense.

    I was using Purina FR but but I recently switched to Nutrena FR. I compared tags and they are identicle in nutrition. Try hitting up your nutrena dealers.
