All 6 of mine used to eat Nutro Lamb and Rice. The economy changed that. Now they all eat Kirkland's Lamb and Rice from Costco. They've done very well on it.

We feed Loyall, what they feed at the track. We go to a feed store in Pasadena and it's about $25 for awhile. It runs basically around $28 - $32 but it like stock, it goes up and down. hee hee Much cheaper then at Petsmart. Plus, you can save up coupons from each bag and after 6 bags you get one free. Good deal.

We get our food at CostCo also and I add about 1 Tablespoon of canned about 1 oz of water mix it up and top it off with a dollop of vanilla Yougurt. EZ gets his KBr sprinkled on top of his for breakfast
Oh they are very fussy about their yogurt they do not like top shelf brands

When we were on the farm in Jax we helped Joe mix the food but he did not use Loyal. They also used raw veggies and juice

I was feeding Nutro Chicken and Oatmeal for a number of years. In the beginning of June, I too changed because of the price. They raised the price and decreased the amount of food in the bag to 35lbs from 40.
I went to a speciality store and have them on FROMM adult fowl. I can't believe how they like it.
With the Nutro I was getting a dozen cans of wet and mixed it together. With FROMM I mix nothing and they can't wait to eat. I do put a bit of water for the 14 yr old grey because she has very few teeth; but the other grey, golden ret., and our Iggy love it dry with nothing mixed in. I took some training on my part not to mix anything in it and a 35 lb bag was 1/2 the price I couldn't believe it.

It made me mad when the prices went up and the bag size went down. I go through 40 pounds a week, not 35. Geeezzzzzz. I also add yogurt in with their food, and in the fall, give them 100% pure pumpkin. They love both.

I haven't heard of FROMM adult fowl. I am glad your guys like it. Cool.

We went to Loyall cause it was a cheaper price and that's what they feed the racers. Even our picker eater Suzy loves it.

I've heard of Fromm before, but where can you buy it, and how much is it?

I but two bags at Costco and have a dedicated Rubbermaid Garbage Can I keep it in. I have to buy it that way as I cannot always get someone to help me get it in the house. Kind of heavy for this old lady

They don't sell it our Costco here. I go to the one in Winchester VA, and Frederick MD.
