That's the quote that popped into my head as I stood at the feed store counter figuring how much hay and straw I wanted for my chicken run/mulch project and discovered there is a pretty massive difference between the price of hay and the price of straw. In theory, I want lots of different hays in the chicken run. In practice, I want a little more of my hard-earned cash in my pocket.
