    Who are suppliers that sell "soy free" all natural chicken feed. My daughter in law is highly allergic to soy?

    Thank you so much. I'm already buying Coyote creek farms from our local feed store, but I what I din't no was the soy free organic was also available in pellets. Now I will ask for that when I order next week

    @GC-Raptor They have that at all the local Agways or small feed stores around here. I think it runs about $35 for a 25# or 35# ?

    I use a soy based feed, but I would try it, for the 18% Protein and the added Omega 3. I'm also curious as to what they used as a replacement for the soy.
    Thank you for the info. GC

    Hearty Hen shouldn't been near that expensive. Last I tried it, it was the same price as other layer at the time. Their ingredients probably changed, but when it came out they used Canola & a few other things to up the protein. Canola is a major GMO plant, so you are not getting away from that. Nature's Best Organic is supposed to come out with a soy free in September. Their regular layer is $24.99/40 pounds at TSC. Don't know what their soy-free will be. Green Mountain has an organic soy free in NE. That is a very good feed!

    Thanks Tiger, I put that on my list to see if they come down to N.E.Texas. I'll put that on the list that SunHawKwon along with others have provided.
