Do any of you use Copdock Mill feed? Not heard of it before

Recommended Posts

As I’m not driving at the moment I have been checking out local options for chicken food.  Previously we used Marriages or Allen and Paige from the nearest Tackshop but that is over 3 miles away.  Our local pet shop, within walking distance, is stocking Copdock Mill feeds but I’ve never heard of the brand.  

Do any of you use it and would you recommend it?

it would be easy to cycle down there on my trike to get supplies rather than be reliant on hubby who travels for work.  Also would like to avoid delivery charges 

 

Thank in advance

Used a cheaper brand once with my old girls and their egg quality went down which is why I’m asking 😊

Smallholders here too.  But give it a try.  Small bag though, just in case.  Maybe they’d let you have a sample?

Thanks everyone.  I’ve bought a 5kg of growers.  Seems very dusty and has no smell.  

Our local shop that stocked small holders and marriages now stocks Fancy Feeds.  I may have kept chickens for years but a few years without and suddenly my learning curve is steep again but I’ll get there  think I might have to buy Smallholders online

It is also very pale compared with the mash in the same feeder

I was using fancy feeds posh mixed corn. It was lovely. But I’ve never used their pellets - marriages here.

Think I’ll be moving back to known brands when this bag is gone.  Got a bag of Garvo Alphamix in the post to use as treats instead of mixed corn.  It looks lovely.  Wish I could afford to use it as main feed.

I bought some of this as a treat too but Garvo do do layers pellets - 731.

Mine have that with a bag of Marriage's with Flubenevet every 3 months.

Do you live near Rokers / Guildford ?

I live fairly close - under 20 miles.  Not driving atm due to a health issue affecting my balance and vision.  Not sure hubby (a reluctant chicken keeper this time round) would drive me that far to buy expensive feed.  Little peckers have it online and seem to only have a £2.99 delivery.  Waiting for one of the kids to look and confirm or will check in the am when my vision is clearer.  

 

(I get the phone to read forum updates (like metal mickey the 70s TV robot) and audiotype for me.  Not always successfully!)

Will have to see where Rokers is in relation to Guildford station as we are on that train line and the station this end is only a mile.  Might be a good adventure 😊

Rokers is near Merrist wood and in the countryside, so not sure you'd be able to get there from the station.

If I don't have time to go out and get feed locally I normally buy from Amazon as I already have Amazon Prime and delivery is normally next day and free!

If you like Garvo feed, then try Dr Green's Co***** Layers Meal from www.farmandpetplace.co.uk it is similar and I use it to cut with the Smallholder pellets occasionally
