No it' OK. Wanted to make sure you were being over charged. I get the pine shaving for 3 for 10 on sale and won't buy unless they're below 5.Good morning gardeners. We did get our first frost of the season. It was 34F when I got up this morning. It's warmed up to 43F currently at 10 am EDT. I'm finally installing the extra window I bought for the big chicken coop. I drilled the pilot holes when I went out for the early morning feeding. Then I pulled the 100 ft. extension cord out of the potting shed. Hopefully it won't take long to cut the hole and install the window. With all the rain, winds and clouds forecasted for this week the new window will brighten up the inside of the coop quite a bit. Obviously no work is planned in the garden today. When this weather system is finally over I plan to get the tulip bulbs in the ground. I know the price of maintaining chickens here in New England has gone up quite a bit this past year @WthrLady. But that's our reality. I checked online and TSC has the 40 pound bags of All Flock at almost $19 a bag. I usually get the 50 pound bags at a different store and the last time I bought feed they were about $18 a bag. Hopefully they haven't gone up in the past month. The shavings used to be $5.99 for an 8 cubic foot bale. They were $6.49 about 3 weeks ago. I understand prices vary from region to region and if you have the need and the storage space then buying in bulk can lower the overall cost. But that is not the reality for the typical backyard chicken wrangler. Sorry, I wasn't ranting, just explaining. Have a great day everyone.
All flock was 18 a bag here this morning, I looked.
I didn't escape this morning for less than 100$
and lets not talk about the people grocery bill. UGH.
