The High Cost of Feeding/ Part 2

If you follow this blog with any regularity, you’ve probably read my post concerning the high cost of black oil sunflower seeds. Well after work today I thought I would stop by my favorite seed store, Tractor Supply Company, to see if their was any fluctuation in the price of black oil sunflower seeds. I’m here to report sadly that there hasn’t been any change. The price of a 40 lb. bag was at $26.99. Now if you were one of the lucky ones who went there on Black Friday you could have gotten that same bag for $7.00 cheaper.

Now granted it’s only been about 2 weeks since my original post, however just remember that when your seed bucket starts to get low, and the thought of running to the store to pick up more seed to feed those hungry birds, just be prepared for the sticker shock. And for those few who got the great deal at tractor Supply, could you spare a couple of scoops?
