This used to be the fancy "expensive" boutique brand that I couldn't afford. Then when feed prices for the generic brand went up at the local feed store, I just switched the gals over to all-Kalmbach, all the time. This is when I realized that even when I was paying a lesser price for the cheap-quality food, it wasn't saving me any money after all because of all the powder that would form at the bottom of the feeder that no one would touch. In a glorious epiphany I realized that unlike the feed-store brands, Kalmbach leaves virtually NO powder at the bottom of the feeder, which means *nothing is wasted.* Also, when you open the bag, it smells like fresh bread, which makes me feel all kinds of warm feelings. And finally, the chickens crave and covet their Kalmbach like nobody's business. This was underscored one week when I forgot to order their Kalmbach. When I apologetically poured the old, generic feed-store brand into their feeder, all my chickens turned up their beaks in disgust. After a few unenthusiastic pecks, they turned back to me expectantly, looking for the Kalmbach. After a few days of lowkey hunger striking, the chickens grimly accepted some *very expensive* organic lay pellets from the feed store mixed with some popular Purina brand of crumbles, but the mood was dour. The feeder slowly emptied, but their was an absence in the chicken yard -- the light in their chicken eyes and the sparkle in their step were gone. After a week of this languid vibe, the Kalmbach order finally arrived. In a wild blur of beaks, the chickens descended upon the feeder and ate and ate and ate.... and all was right again in Chicken Land. May they never run out of their precious Kalmbach feed again.
