Nutrena Naturewise All Flock vs Purina Flock Raiser

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Which is better and why? I have chickens and turkeys (boys and girls of both) and currently feed Flock Raiser crumbles. The All Flock is available in pellets.
The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

Hi there - a very interesting question, so I googled! Both brands are owned by the same company- Cargill.

   From what I read, I really don't see much difference between the two. On a personal note, I use Nutrena feather fixer for my flock. After I started using it I noticed a definite improvement in feather sheen.

I use Purina Flock Raiser, which also comes in pellets.  It's 20% protein and it seems to get the hens through the molt faster.  Some are even continuing to lay while molting, which didn't happen in previous years when I kept them on layer feed (16% protein).  

 

I haven't used the NatureWise All Flock, but did notice from the label that it has less protein (18%) than the Purina Flock Raiser (20%).

Where do you buy the Flock Raiser in pellets at? I've checked Purinas website and have only seen it offered in crumbles.

I get it at my local feed store (E&L Supply) in Spring Mills, PA.  Check with your feed store.  If they carry Purina products, it's very likely they can order the pellets for you.
