    Default A blue seal type grower cal pellets available in the south

    I feed out grower cal pellets for my geese and chickens, and the goat enjoys some too.

    I went to the local feed stores here and they sell crumbles and I am looking for a pellet, similar to Blue Seal grower cal pellets.
    Anyone know of a decent brand?
    I was told tractor supply, but I'd prefer a better brand/quality.

    I am in SC now.

    How old are your chickens? If they are around 18-20 weeks of age or have produced an egg they can now be switched to a Layer pellet, so you could see if the store is carrying Layer, in pellet form.

    I have fed Blue Seal from the very beginning of my chicks lives and have just now started to try out other brands (the hardware store that sells Blue Seal is an absolute pain to deal with, which stinks).

    So I went to TSC and got Dumor Layer Crumble, but I believe they also have Purina in a Layer pellet. I have used Purina's Scratch Grains and really liked them. I switched from pellet to mash after one of my Silkies got a crop impaction (I'm not saying the pellets caused it, but when caring for CI they say to use mash feed).

    Anyway, I hope my rambling helped you some. Good luck!
    I LOVE my Chickens!

    actually, I prefer the grower cal pellet vs a layer pellet...my geese are males, and they get the most of the feed, since I just have one chicken left.

    I can get crumbles here, but am looking for the pellet(hopefully).
