You will do just fine with Layena! I recommend the pellets over the crumbles for less waste. ($15 for a 50 lb bag) You can add oyster shells for added calcium and to firm up their egg shells (also good for their digestion). You can throw out cracked corn ($10 for 50 lb. bag) as a treat and meal worms which can also be found at TSC. We also free range and we get a dozen nice large eggs each day!
