    Agway carries it? Awesome theres one nearby![​IMG] I was worrying I wouldn't be able to find a feed store around here (not many chicken keepers) Well that's a relief

    The cost seems to be pretty good for me too

    Whole corn from the elevator $10/100 lbs. They also have chick-go medicated $12/ 50#. This was based on 1,000 lb. purchase of corn a month. $480 in the feed grinder= PRICELESS!

    i purchase my feed from a local farmer.

    grower= $19 for 100#
    layer= $16 for 100#
    crushed corn or seed wheat= $12 for 100#

    freshly ground every three days, no preservatives or added colors. our chickens thrive on it.

    I was clicking around the hatchery sites and came across 50lbs of organic layer pellets with shipping for $65. Who in the world would pay that much. Our Western Reserve supply sells it for 12.95 for 50 lbs. There for a while I had to pay $18 for 50 with the price spike.
