  1. Duck Keeper
    In case you were wondering...





    Here's the description right off of Purina Mills' pamphlet for Layena: Once your laying birds (and all adult birds including roosters, ducks, geese, and turkeys) reach 18 weeks of age, they will need Layena SunFresh Recipe to support egg laying. Natural and wholesome like the Start & Grow products, Layena contains high calcium levels to support eggshell formation while maintaining a healthy skeleton. In addition, Layena is fortified with manganese to enhance shell quality. High levels of xanthophyll from marigolds result in rich, yellow yolks, while the enhanced concentration of vitamin E provides for more robust immune protection.

    I in no way support this product of endorse it's use, your money is your money, your choice is your choice, this is just the exact description in their promotional pamphlet that I have generously copied for your use. :/

    It goes on to say:
