    Grain is getting way out of hand.I paid 10.69 for 50 lbs of cracked corn and 13.39 for gamebird feed.What is it going to cost us when gas goes up to 5.00 per gallon?

    $10.69 is good for cracked corn in these parts (though I'm not that far from you). Locally it's $15 something for both cracked corn and flock raiser/Agway layer crumbles.

    In Ct the layer pellets are up to 16 bucks at some Agways. I go to Tractor Supply now for 14. Cracked corn is 10 something here too. It used to be 7 dollars. It's going out of control!!!!!

    I pay $11 a bag for layer pellets, and $8 for corn. I am paying $13 for game bird feed. I am also paying $15 a bag for soy meal that I add to all of the feed for more protein.

    After reading how much you all pay I'm almost ashamed to admit how much I pay.
    Here goes...I pay $27.99 for organic pride chick starter when I have chicks, ducklings or cornish x. I pay $21.99 for organic pride layer pellets and $19.99 once a year for organic pride cracked corn. I like the higher protein this feed provides so I keep buying it and I only have 7 chickens and 2 ducks all of which free range all day so I don't go through a bag a month. Their eggs also sell for $4/dozen so they pay for their feed in 1/2 a month.

    Edited to add that each bag is 50lbs

    I pay $13 for a 50 lb bag of Layena pellets. I have 32 hens and only getting 2-6 eggs/day. It ends up about 2 bags per week. Pretty expensive eggs!
