    The TSC will be selling Purina brand feed on Oct. 5th. I have used their Dumor brand from chick to now. They are only 16 weeks old now. ( pullets ) Anyone have an opinion on Purina vs Dumor chicken feed. I am using Dumor grower/starter now.

    Dumor is a Purina product, isn't it?

    I use Dumor and my chickens don't like it much. I'm looking forward to trying something else.

    Although I've never tried Purina, I do not like Dumor.

    We use Purina and we're happy with it. I use both Purina starter and layer mixes.

    I've never used Dumor, though, so I can't offer a comparison.

    To me, it doesn't matter. If Blue Seal Feed is available, that's what I use. I've driven to the next town over to another farm supply to get it if I need grains.

    My girls eat and are doing well on the Dumor. But it smells almost like stale beer. It is a strange smell. I just may switch over to Purina.

    We have always used Dumor and have never had any problems. Never used Purina but I hear it's good.

    I remember reading somewhere that Dumor is made by Purina. Our birds do great on Dumor. We recently switched over a month ago to Buckeye pelleted feed because of the ducks and my chickens have stopped laying. I think they are boycotting!
