Suggested Layer Feed

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a group of 6 17-18 week old pullets that are still on starter/grower feed.  I plan on keeping them all on this feed until everyone is laying but I have started to offer egg shells as a calcium supplement in order to give them a little extra calcium for when they start laying.  What suggestions do you have for a non-GMO, organic layer feed?  I am looking for the healthiest food possible with hopefully no additives since I stick to a mostly Paleo diet myself I am very cautious of what my chickens are eating.

There are several out there. Any organic feed SHOULD be non--GMO.

You'll just have to call around to your area feed stores to see if anyone carries one.

You can also order online but the shipping will be pricey.

There won't be any additives like one has in human purposed processed food. The words you can't pronoiunce on the ingredient label are stabilized vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids which are really essential if feeding a vegetative based feed.
