    I am wondering approximately how much I need to feed 4 laying hens. I use Laying pellets (crumbles) with a handful of scratch mixed in. They are 2 years old, I've had them 4 weeks and have only gotten 1 egg.

    Thanks![​IMG]

    You'll want to have feed available to them 24/7. It's also a good idea to supplement their feed with oyster shell. You can offer this in a seperate bowl.
