Purina Layena Plus Omega-3 Layer Feed, 40 lb. is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 296.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy Our chickens have always had Purina Layena. Recently I switched to the Omega-3, hoping to boost their health and have better eggs. Instead I have chickens that have become egg eaters. They have never done this before, the new feed is the only thing switched. Hard habit to break. I attribute it to something in the feed. Switching back and hoping for the best. Not the outcome I was hoping for.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks and smells great I felt in over my head trying to pick out a appropriate feed for my easter egger girls. With so many different feeds on the market it can be a daunting chore to undertake. Luckily a ad came up on my facebook feed informing me of this formula. With so much positive reviews i went ahead and picked up a bag. It has a pleasant smell that the chickens quickly gobbled up. I look forward to seeing a change in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great egg quality. I love the results I get with the Omega food. Great egg production, egg taste and yolk color and the shells are nice and thick. I had a few hensnot like the pellets so I started breaking it up and once they got use to it they now eat the pellets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eggsellent!! We got chicks at the same time as my mother in law and we started feeding our girls Omega 3 while my mother in law started hers on another brand. She stopped by one day while we were gathering eggs and asked if we had not gathered the day before. We were like no this is the daily haul. She couldn’t believe we were getting twice as many eggs! Happy to say she has now switched to the Omega 3!

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.

I have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. If my chickens are fed this product do they lay gluten free eggs?

Asked by: ACOV
Thanks for contacting Purina. All eggs are gluten free. If the gluten protein was in the feed it would be broken down to individual amino acids (the basic building blocks of proteins), which are very small, short-chain fragments that are no longer gluten. Therefore, the eggs are gluten free and cause no concern for your family.

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.
