if I feed my poor layers the egg ratio, will they lay more and better?
If they are older birds or do not have the genetics for egg production, they will not have great egg production. A balanced laying ration can only get them so far. It will not overcome age or genetic limitations.
Nutrition is a key part of production, so birds on a good diet will generally have better production than those on a poor diet - but genetics still play a significant role in things so you aren't going to turn a 2-3 egg a week breed into a 6-7 egg a week breed simply with better feed.
What they said. Ornamental, etc are only going to lay so much.They may lay daily for a period, then quite due to broodiness,etc. Or, they may simply lay a few times a week instead of daily.
Good feed is always better than poor feed, but it can only go so far to overcome genetics.
