    If you are just trashing your feed bags I'd like to take them off your hands!
    I'll cover the cost of shipping! Please PM me!

    I am redoing my garden for next year and would like to use them as a weed barrier. Thank you!!
    I only have 6 chicks so they only go through like a 50# bag/mo lol

    I'm not sure how many sizes the bags come in. I pay $16 for my 50# bags I'm willing to pay half for ones in good condition as well as shipping.

    Are you talking about the plastic mesh feedbags or the paper feed bags? I use both and LOTS of them. Currently have a huge stack or plastic mesh available. I can get about 40 in a priority box.

    I get the woven nylon bags and re-use mine in my brooders so I can just roll it up every day, throw it in a pile below my barn water run off to grow maggots and larvae for the chickens to eat and then put down another clean bag in my brooder. The chicks can't slip and slide on it because it is woven, not like the slick bags.

    If I had them I would send them to you though! HenThymes will do you right! You can trust her!

    Quote:Yes! Great idea. My husband is going to be real unhappy when he sees me saving my feed bags. But it will be worth it to not have to weed.
