    Looks like this was my one and only Kruse purchase. [​IMG]

    So what ya'll are saying is that if I switch to a feed with less ash, I might actually get more than 1-3 eggs per day out of 8 layers? [​IMG] It's that simple of a solution? [​IMG] sheeeesh!

    OK...what brands have the least amounts of ash? I'll start calling around looking for them.

    Is it only listed as "ash" on the main ingredients? I don't see it listed at all on the feed we Bought yesterday from Higley.

    Quote:Nobody here in WB has Purina. I buy Purina if I "accidentaly" pass by a feed store that carries it. Otherwise I feed Nutrena. Chickens are ok with it and lay ok. But the price has gone up substantially lately! I am still contemplating finding a feed mill and bying bulk with other BYC members...

    As far as the ash goes:
    Seller version (or what the benevolent customer would think): ash is added for "mineral" content.
    Business version (or what the sceptical customer would think): ash is added because it adds bulk without cost.

    Quote:The organic might not have ash (hence a lot more expensive). The regular clearly lists it (see earlier post with pic of ingredients).
