Where I live, the closest feed stores are 25 miles away either way to two different cities. So a few weeks ago I was off the hill and went to the feed store in city A. I got 4 cochin chicks from them. When I went to check out I asked for medicated starter mash and they don't carry it. I asked for chick grit and they don't carry that either. So I got a bag of the unmedicated as I had to have something to feed them and left. So my husband got me 3 Maran chicks for Mother's Day. So I went to the feed store in town B and again asked for the medicated starter mash. They don't carry it. I asked for chick grit and they said you mean oyster shell. I said no, I mean chick grit. Again she said you mean oyster shell. I said no, I want chick grit and she said we don't have it and she wasn't pleasant in the way she said it. Town A isn't a big animal town so to speak, so I could almost give them a pass for not having the medicated feed, but if they are going to sell chicks, then I feel they should. Town B is an animal town with most people having 5 acres or more. I live in the mountains between these two points and there are no feed stores in my town. Town B I would think should have a good selection. Also, both of these places never have any of the brands of feed all of you talk about getting. And they never, ever have anything organic. Why is it so hard to find a decent feed store? I just had to vent about this. It is annoying as the next one in town C will be about a 65 mile drive each way, which I don't really want to make. My only other option will be to order organic feed from Modesto and shipping is $106 no matter how much or how little I order. I don't have that kind of spare cash to sink into feed right now as we are building a new tractor and coop. I really wish we had a decent feed store close by.
