Wow- I just went to get my chickens some feed (at the farmer's co-op) and the price has went up! Laying pellets are $14.99 for a 50# bag, Scratch grains are $11.49 a bag and a 50# bag of Chick Starter is $15.00! I started selling my eggs to pay for feed. We were giving them away, but feeding them costs more now. Thank goodness they free range also! I'm feeding 29 chickens and 38 3-4 week old chicks.
