Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with TSC Went to two different TSC to purchase this chicken feed. Both had mites crawling all over the bags. The manager offered a discount.....not acceptable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Layer mash Wasn't the brand i was looking for, but limited choices in the larger bags. Too expensive!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Q&A I originally read the Q&A and saw that a "purina expert" said that this feed is organic. You can imagine my excitement when I saw the price. I went to the local store to look at the product. It isn't certified organic. It isn't even non-GMO. Hence, why it is so cheap. You are feeding a bunch of chemicals to your chickens, which goes into the eggs, and into you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They love this stuff! They go nuts over this feed, never a spilled pellet remains. Also, I noticed their yolks were darker and their shells harder almost immediately after they started on it. I definitely won't be switching back!

The description says no need to supplement with grit. Is this statement correct, I don't need to offer grit to my hens if on this feed?

Asked by: thisjed
Thanks for your inquiry. That is correct! If you are feeding the Layena as a sole diet, there is no need to offer any grit. If the hens are offered a type of scratch grain, cracked corn, or free range where they also may eat insects and other food items, then we suggest to have grit offered.

Will they need oyster shell on the side or does this provide enough calcium?

Asked by: Eggie1
If feeding Layena Plus Omega at the rate of at least 90% of their total diet, then it should be providing enough calcium for the laying hen's needs. If you are feeding scratch grains and/or table scraps, but at more than 10% of their total diet per day, then this will dilute the formula and possibly not meet the protein, vitamin and/or mineral requirements of the bird.

We feed as complete diet with occasional scraps and garden clippings.  Incubated eggs from hens and only 5% hatched. rest  fully formed chicks but did not hatch. Does this feed make  shells too hard for  chicks to hatch?  Should I use  Different feed?

Asked by: Henpeck2
Thanks for choosing Purina. The layer products will have additional calcium to support a harder egg shell, but this will not inhibit the chick from being able to break through the shell while hatching. In some research difficulty of breaking and emerging from shell could be related to humidity being too low during incubation.

Asked by: chickengirl93
Thanks for contacting Purina. You may feed the Layena to the hens that are free ranging. You want to be certain they are 18 weeks of age, or laying eggs before switching to it.
