    Nobody around here(southeast Louisiana)has had this stuff but, I went to Tractor Supply today for feed and dog food and was glad to see they finally had it. I checked it this evening and the pellets are smaller than the regular Layena. It's going for $15.99 for a 40 lb bag.

    We got it in W/Ky around the first of Sept at the local TSC.. It was 14.49 a bag when i bought my first bag but has since went up to 15.99. I really like the pellet size. I am on my third bag now.

    And if you calculate the cost of the feed that it would be if it came in the 50lb bags that poultry feed traditionally comes in it would be $20 a bag or more. Pretty steep!

    We get more posts about this new Purina feed than any other specific type and brand of feed that I can recall.

    Wonder how the OP got those copyright tags in the title.... Or why? I don't have one of those cool keys on my laptop [​IMG]

    Price is a little steep for us and you can't get it in my part of AZ anyway..... We were going to give it a try as we had some coupons, but 120 mile round trip to the closest place that carried it and we have 3 feed stores close to us where feed is 14.50 for 50 pounds right now. Likely going up again as well sadly....

    Oh, but you do: [​IMG] (on a windows computer press ALT+0174).

    That's how she did it probably, or she copied and pasted from the Purina website

    this link has an explanation on how to do it.

    First off she is a he! Secondly, I did in fact simply copy and paste for the title.

    Yes, this is an expensive feed but only by a couple of dollars. Is there any other way of feeding to increase the Omega 3 in the eggs produced?
