We had been unhappy with the Layena Crumbles for a while now. Seems every bag had at least a large coffee can or two of dust in it,sometimes more. We also noticed a lot of sneezing from several of the girls while they were eating(only when eating...they were not sick). The eggs did have very thick and hard shells and looked good but the girls didn't have the "shine" they used to have. We figured it was time to try another feed! Being a former Southern States employee I decided to try their 16% All-grain Layer Crumble. We are well into the second bag and I can report a major difference. Very little dust(with crumbles you always expect some dust in the mix) and I have not heard a sneeze at the feeder in a month now. The eggshells are a bit thinner but still very solid and the look/flavor of the eggs is still very good. We keep oyster shell and Grani-grit free choice if they need it. And the girls really like the SS feed. They had both offered side by side and the Layena was ignored! Another thing we noticed about the Southern States feed was the smell. It really smelled fresher than the Layena! More like freshly ground feed I was used to as a kid. The girls are looking very healthy and we are happy with the results. An added bonus....Layena is up to $17.00/50lb in our area. Southern States 16% All-grain crumbles is under $13.00/50lb .
