    Trying Layena for the first time.......same price and same protein numbers. Any of you prefer layena to Dumor?

    I think that Purina mills the Dumor for Tractor Supply co. I have always used Dumor and had no trouble with it. Have done both crumbles and pellets. I am a rookie having started in May '09.

    Hope you're enjoying the new endeavor:) I've always used dumor but thought I'd see if layena upped their production since the last couple winters have been a little sparse.

    we have always used dumor (from chicks to layers) other than once when we bought a different kind of purina that wasn't layena and the outcome smelled horrible. I really hope TSC keeps dumor, though I think the Layena is going to replace it as their staple brand, or so I was told by an employee there.

    My TSC doesn't carry the layer pellets only the crumbles.... I have been using Manna Pro Egg Maker pellets and have been very happy with them. I've used the Dumor chick starter and was really happy with it. It smells really good [​IMG]
