    I found some at TSC, too. They only had the small bags of Manna pro, though.

    I dont know how many birds you have but some of the high end feeds can run 16 to 17 dollars a bag. when first starting out i used purina gamebird feed but now i use about bag of feed a day so i researched and called around my area and found a cheaper brand with almost the same amounts of all the ingredients in it for almost half the price. i mix a bag of layer and a grower together to maintain the high protein with the vitamins needed for laying because i sell meat and eggs. if you just have a few id use purina
