Item Information

Purina Layena Crumbles Premium Poultry Feed is formulated with the optimum nutrition for healthy birds and nutritious eggs.

  • A 16%-protein, high-calcium ration formulated with prebiotics, probiotics and yeast for top-producing laying hens once they reach 18 weeks of age
Now with Oyster Strong System for strong shells. Oyster shell provides another source of calcium when the hens need it most. Oyster shell is a larger particle size than limestone. This means that oyster shell will stay in the digestive tract longer and will provide a source of calcium for egg shell production over a longer period of time than smaller particle sources of calcium. This is especially important at night when egg shell formation is rapidly occurring and dietary sources of calcium are limited because the bird is not eating.
  • Added Marigold Extract for rich yellow yolks - A high level of xanthophyll, a coloring agent derived from marigolds, produces deep yellow egg yolks
  • Calcium Manganese and Trace Minerals: Strong shells
  • Essential Amino Acids: Enhanced with lysine and methionine to give birds the nutrients they need to produce plenty of wholesome and delicious eggs; Also promotes beautiful feathering
  • Levels of Vitamin A, D, E
  • Strong reproduction and overall health - A high level of Vitamin A helps birds grow into healthy adult birds
  • Prebiotics, Probiotics and Yeast Supports immune and digestive health
  • Research-Backed High Quality Formulation: Wholesome nutrition you can trust to provide the very best for your poultry

is it ok for my roosters to eat?

Asked by: leathers
Thanks for your question. We suggest the Purina Flock Raiser is better suited for the roosters since they do not need the additional calcium which is in the Layena formulation.

I have a hen that is about 5 years old and hasn't laid an egg in awhile, is this kind of feed OK for a current non-layer? It says it supports healthy immune system which is another reason I want to purchase this kind.

Asked by: Xiomara
If your hen is no longer laying, you will be better to switch to a product that is lower in calcium such as the non-medicated Start & Grow or the non-medicated Flock Raiser. These both support a healthy immune system as well.

Is it necessary to feed my layers oyster shell if I use

Asked by: George 1
Thanks for choosing Purina. As long as you are feeding Layena to provide 90% or more of thier total diet, there is no need to supplement with oyster shell. The calcium level is high enough to meet their laying needs. Keep table scraps and scratch grain to a 10% or less of diet and you will be fine.

my chicken like this food but don't like the sawdust looking feed with it (there is a bunch of it in the bag) it just goes to waste. I thought about the pellets but know if they would like the bigger feed. what do you suggest?

Asked by: Karmen
Hi Karmen - If you purchased a product that has excessive fines, please return the unused portion in the original bag to the TSC store. We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. They should replace the product for you. If you would like to try the pellets, you are best to transition the birds over a 7-10 day period by blending what they are currently eating with the new product (slowly increase the new while decreasing the old). The Layena pellets will be the same formula as the Layena crumbles, just a larger pellet size.
