Duffields superlayer pellets 10.75 for 20kg yesterday in South Wales

Are they the Chicken Choice ones? I normally get those at our store at the same price - 10.75 for 20 kg but the own brand is cheaper and I'm trying to cut back on feed costs. My favourite brand is Marriages but round here it is really pricey and they don't stock it at our two nearest stores.

Um not sure what the chicken choice ones means sorry. Duffields superlayer pellets is all it says on the bag. I buy it from Pet Superstore so they don't do an own brand as they aren't a normal aggricultural feed supplier. If they did I would probably do a 50/50 mix as my feeders hold about 15kg of food at each too up. I'm trying to keep my feed costs down too as I've not put up the price on the eggs that I sell. It's not so bad during the warmer months as I've always got a spare veg bed that I can pop something in to supplement their layers pellets

Seems UK prices are a bit lower than here. We have just seen a small increase but they are now 18.25 for a 25Kg bag (standard size here) of Sanders layer pellets. Converting that to and a 20kg bag works out at  12.70. A lot depends where you buy them from though. The gardening stores are more expensive and if there are no competitors nearby, as was the case with an independent store in the Dordogne, you can pay double. You can also add 5 if you want to buy without chemical colourants, or 'yolk enhancers' as they call them.

When we left the UK we were buying Smallholder layers for under 7 a bag, 500 Kg at a time, but that was 10 years ago. The prices in the Dordogne came as a real shock, doubly so because we couldn't sell eggs without a business licence.
12.80 for 20kg atm around Leicester
