    Not sure if it is the best...but I feed mine Purina Layena. The egg production is good! I also offer scratch, oyster shell and scraps.

    Blue Seal for us.... I think (my mom actually gets the feed and we get it at Blue Seal feed stores so I presume that's what it is.)

    Layer feed from Farm & Fleet when our grain store runs out. But usually Purina Layer Pellets for our grain store.

    Homestead All-Natural Layer Crumble from Hubbard Feeds is the best for us!
