Purina Layena Plus Omega-3 Layer Feed, 40 lb. is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 285.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pellets Bought a few weeks ago and the girls seem to like it so far. The pellets are smaller than the other normal feed from Purina. But it's still the same weight and has the added omegas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for my flocks I have been feeding this to all my hens, roosters, ducks and guinea fowl for the last year and they love it. My hens eggs are strong and healthy, I haven't had any issues with their shells. This feed along with free ranging is a perfect combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chickens Like It. My chickens like it and for me that's all that matters. When they do lay, the eggs are in good shape...strong shell.

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.

I will be getting laying hens for a school project, is this feed good for them. How different is this type of feed than to normal chicken feed?

Asked by: emilys11
This is a great product for your project. The difference in this when compared to other layer feed is the Omega-3 fatty acid content. When fed this product with increased amounts of Omega-3, it is passed into the egg. This benefit is for human consumption where each egg will contain at least 250 mg Omega - 3. The product will need to be fed continuously for 3 weeks to deliver this result. And, this amount is based on a large egg (50 g). Let us know if you have any additional questions.

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.

Is this a crumble or pellet type food?

Asked by: Callistus
The Layena Plus Omega is a smaller pellet size. We do not have this available in a crumble form.
