Group purchase of Organic Chicken Feed - Buy Wholesale in Phoenix Arizona AZ soy free non GMO feeds Mesa, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Surprise, Avondale, USDA Certified

A Group of Arizona backyard chicken farmers have brought their organic poultry feed volume together to obtain wholesale pricing on organic chicken feed.  In most cases, the group saves about $8 or more per 50lb bag over Azure Standard prices, and $15-$20 saving per bag when compared with retail feed stores. 

We have done 10 orders as of June 12th, 2013.  We are accepting others chicken farmers in Phoenix Arizona Valley, who are interested in organic feed at a lower price.   The minimum is, one 50lb bag of feed.  Read website for more details or write your questions below.  To receive an order form send an email requesting to become part of the organic chicken feed order group to organicphx@gmail.com

Does anyone have an extra bag of the fishmeal layer?  I'm hoping somebody did what I should have done and ordered an extra bag or two.

One of mine got wet somehow and was full of mold when I opened it.  :(

I don't have enough now to make it to the next delivery time.

The feed for June arrived on Monday June 3rd.  Order forms are forecast to go out as follows:

- first week of August 2013- form are emailed mid-July
- first week of October 2013- form are emailed mid- Sept
- first week of December 2013- form are emailed mid-November  

The feed is still mash feed.  It is a coarse mesh which everyone seems to prefer.  However the main reason most prefer pellets is only due to perceived waste of the fine powder, which we remedy easily with a simple technique in this 1 minute video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN0vNxFrkT4

All but two are paid up for the June order. I have submitted the order and I will email everyone who ordered when the truck is loaded and on the road and again when the truck arrives.  

I should hear a rough forecast sometime tomorrow, when they review the order. Thank you everyone for a smooth order. 

A question came up regarding food grade grains. Would anyone be interested in organic flour and commodities since they are already available. We can add them to our order forms. It can come on the same truck as the feed, but seperate pallets. Respond below if you are interested....

That is why we carry soy-free chicken feed.  Soy free products seem to be a major component of why people are part of this organic feed group.  Take a look at this research which found soy isoflavones go into the eggs and meat of birds who eat soy.  It is a fascinating study done by the Ohio State University whch might explain your allergy to soy and therefore eggs or meat.

I quit buying eggs because of a soy allergy, seems everything has soy in it!

It is time to place our June 2013 order for organic chicken feed in Phoenix.   We order only once every two months.   Deadline for order and payment is May 25th.
