Our local Countrywide store closed late last year – leaving us with only one local choice for bulk chicken feed – Jollyes Pet Food Superstore.
Back in 2009 a 20kg bag of Layers Pellets worked out at £6.21 — and today Jollyes are asking for £9.60, an increase of £3.39, in percentage terms this is an additional 50%.
One word. Ouch.
So when we go back to selling any spare eggs that are not hoovered up by our family we’ll be looking for a tad more than the £1.50 for a box of 6.
