Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep those chickens happy!! chickens are eating it and laying nice shelled eggs
Date published: 2018-10-25
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why only available in pellets? My chickens won't eat the pellets. They are free range and rather ignore the pellets and graze and scratch for bugs. They gobble up the crumbles from the Grange but Omega 3 is not available in crumbled. Please consider making the the Omega 3 in CRUMBLES.

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.

can I feed this to quail?

Asked by: jlucky84
The Layena is not formulated for gamebirds. We have the Gamebird Breeder Layena that we suggest to feed to quail.

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.

I Birmingham Roller Pigeons I feed their omega-3 pellets to them it produces good looking birds and Performing Birds. Only problem I have is that makes their droppings really messy and smelly anything I can add to dry out the droppings

Asked by: B davis
Thanks for your question. There is really not anything that can be added to "dry out" droppings from a feed standpoint. However, focus on increasing the ventilation around your birds. Loose droppings can be a result of increased water consumption. If the birds are too hot, they are going to drink more water. Keeping the birds cool will decrease water intake and, hopefully, offer you a drier feces.

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.
