"Nutripeck" feed?
« on: December 30, 2011, 06:57:15 pm »
Has anyone tried Nutripeck feed?
Looks good value, though I have yet to work out delivery costs...

But is it good enough stuff for my little darlings?!

I use it all the time - it comes in plastic bags (purple ones) so stays dry - I could store mine in my shed in the back garden but they are too heavy for me to move so Colin leaves them under the eaves beside my hen run.  £8 delivered.  My hens are fit and well, have been since I started using it about 3 months ago

I've seen Nutripeck online at Millbry hill, £5.99 layers meal & £6.99 pellets ... I currently pay £7.99 for either/or.
But the delivery cost are prohibitive because of the weight.

It says it is sourced in North Yorkshire - I will look out for other suppliers.
Thanks Doganjo, thats a good recommendation  :thumbsup:

I could probably buy chicken food cheaper if I could lift 20kg sacks and go and collect it.  I reckon it's worth an extra pound or so to have it delivered to within 5 feet of my feeding station - and whenever I want it.  At 68 (today) I don't want to shift that sort of weight around. ::) ;D

Travel to collect from here would add on £1 a bag.
