 slaph Well I just did my annual (or is it bi-annual) pellet ordering!  Good time to do it, right at holiday time!  :ugstpd:
I searched for sooooooooo long to find the best prices and free shipping.  I ended up going with PetSolutions and PetCo.  The only thing I did not get in bulk (but multiple bags) was the micro pellets.  Kaytee does not carry it in bulk bags.  But I finally did get the Kaytee Fiesta Max for our little guys in 25 pounds and a few bags (of something new!) Kaytee exact natural with veggies!....along with the 25 pounds-ish of Kaytee rainbow, PrettyBird and Zupreem.  I got free shipping with both orders.  I recall checking Dr.s F&S and on some things the prices were almost $10 higher! and the other places that charge full shipping would be a fortune....how can some places offer the free shipping and other's not???
Hopefully this will last...at least 6 months!  :twirl:

Pellet prices are nuts anymore. We go through 10 pounds of Zurpreem natural in 3 weeks, along with 8 pounds of fruit zupreem. Then the little fids go through 25 pounds of seed in about 2 months.

Add that to my dog food at 5 pounds every 2 weeks, guinea pig food at 4 pounds a month, rat food at...idk his food is all human grade stuff mixed.

Then the pig alone eats at least $30 in fresh food a month  bugeye

Wow, that's a lot of food :O

In case anyone hasn't heard of it, I highly recommend checking out bulkbirdfood.com because they have pretty good prices (I always get the 20 pounds of large parrot natural Zupreem for $32). Can't remember their shipping prices, but I'm pretty sure it's free for orders over $100. Idk, they have a lot of good brands...

 thumb That is one place I looked!  I don't recall why I didn't order there...I am thinking they didn't have something in bulk I needed,  :dmblaf:I know it says bulkbirdfoods...
It is alot of food..it all gets broken down and stored in these....huge heavy duty ziplock like bags.  Yeah with all our flock it's too much bs to go to the store so much and much more expensive that way.
BF....pig as in Guinea...or do you have a piggie-piggie...pot belly????!!!!!
