    I just got back from the feed store with a new product. Layena Plus. I had never heard of it before today. It costs 20% more than Layena but contains Flax for Omega 3 and marigold oils for egg color. Any of you tried it yet or know anything more about it?

    Adding flax is what I have been doing. The only way I could get the birds to eat it was to mix it in with their normal food and add water and yogurt to make a mush, which they got as a treat in the afternoons. The new food also has more calcium, manganese, and marigold extract. Not sure if that is all good though. I have one chicken that lays thin shelled eggs at times and I'm hoping a change in food will help. None of my birds eats much of the provided oyster shell.
