I have tried the chicken feed also and came up with the same pros and cons.  If 
we could just find a feed that was ground just a tad finer, it would be great.  
At our local elevator, they have hog feed but it is ground too fine and is a 
bit dusty epecially when Dee gets in the box.  She covers for an hour after she 
is done and raises a dust storm.  I didn't have problems with weevils.  You 
might try a local elevator/feed store if one is near you, the chick feed might 
be even cheaper.  I think I got mine for under $7.00 for 50 lbs.  And if it 
doesn't work for the litter box, put it out for the deer, birds and little 
creatures.  Just be sure it is a healthy distnce from the house or they will be 
inviting themselves in for anything else they can find.
