I got it specially for our duck who is about to start laying.but they all like it so everyone is getting it. I am thinking because they free range more now they dont eat as much feed. So they lay less or the other hens are hiding eggs somewhere. Which happened before.all the other hens know my little one is after their eggs.they truly dont like her . she is always alone but she seems to like it that way. She isnt on the bottom of the P.O. but shr is an outcast of sorts. She was hatched right after a power outage and both legs were turned inside. I fixed one leg but the other is still od shaped
One of the primary causes of egg eating is insufficient protein. Layer feed is not required for egg production. There is no magic ingredient in it. It's just regular feed with a whole lot more calcium. Too much calcium for any bird can be deadly. It's much safer for a mixed age/species flock to feed something without the added calcium and let the birds regulate their own intake with crushed oyster shell. Starter, grower, or flock raiser are better choices for free range flocks.
